With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching and everything hearts and chocolate, I’m excited that we’re reading Love Monster and the Last Chocolate by Rachel Bright for this week’s Literacy Snack Monster Read Aloud.
“When Love Monster comes home from vacation, he discovers a box of chocolates on his doorstep. He knows he should share it with his friends, but what if there’s none left for him after everyone has a piece? What if they take his favorite-the double chocolate strawberry swirl? And even worse-what, if the only piece left, is the coffee-flavored one? Ick! In the end, Love Monster learns that sharing with friends is the sweetest treat of all.”
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
For this week, we’re not technically making a snack, but instead, we’re all going to share a box of chocolates! That’s all you’ll need is a piece of chocolate for each student.
We talk about how it made you feel to know that the monster’s friends saved the last chocolate for him and who they would each like to share their last chocolate with.
After we talk about the book, I created a printable for them to work on. They will continue the conversation we had by drawing and writing about who they would share their chocolate with. It’s a great way to incorporate kindness as well.
