Reading Lesson Ideas for Leonardo the Terrible Monster
Not only could you use this book for reading comprehension lessons, but Leonardo would also make a great set of lessons for drawing and writing about characters with detail in writers workshop! His expressions are precious!
A video for Leonardo the Terrible Monster
This is a great recorded read-aloud version of the book. As you know, a video does not replace books. However, each day we spend time lingering over this book and looking closely. So usually by Friday, we welcome hearing a different rendition of the book.
Here is new one for you to check out!

Students worked on examining the character. Here is the chart as a result (photo credit: Deanna Jump).

Leonard the Terrible Monster Craft
These awesome pictures were sent to me by a teacher who uses our Engaging Readers. Each week, we include a related craft or art project. For Leonard the Terrible Monster, we had a directed drawing. Students then used watercolors!
Here is another directed drawing example from Ms. Ipoletta’s class! LOVE!
