Texture Monster Feedback:


There was so many options for this product. I am sure I will use it in lots of different ways. This week I used the ready made monsters and some texture plates for my Kindergarteners. I only have them for about 15-20 mins each week and this activity filled that time perfectly. However, if you needed more time filled there is plenty of options there for a fabulous lesson. It was successful at teaching the element of texture I am very happy with my purchase.
