The Day I Was A Monkey
I got these really cute images from a coworker a few years ago. She would have her students trace the images to create a picture of themselves. She had a lot of images to choose from. Since she taught 4th grade it was too hard for my second graders to do it. So I chose a few of the images that I thought my students would be able to do. I also changed the main body parts. Instead of having them draw themselves, I had them draw themselves as a monkey. (My classroom is decorated in monkeys!) Then they have to write about their day as a monkey. I give them the writing prompt "One day I woke up and I was a monkey..."
