This month's writing pieces are composed by students from Mayfield Junior School of the Holy Child Jesus, Pasadena, CA
Painting a picture with words...
After drawing a monster of choice, 4th grade students in one homeroom wrote a descriptive paragraph with details about its appearance, expression and unique monster-qualities. The paragraphs were then shared with students in another homeroom who drew their impression of the monster based on the description they read. Did the Monsters Match? You be the judge!
Gracie Mills, 4th Grade
Warning! Read the whole paragraph before drawing. My monsters name is Sprinkles and his body is shaped like a bear but has three pointy fingers on each hand that are sharp on the end like a thin triangle. He is wearing a round hat with a brim and there are two berries on the right side of the end of the hat that are missing their tops. My monster also has a bowl shaped mouth that looks like an invisible took the middle of the bowl. While that person was picking the middle of the bowl it formed a tepee. There are four block teeth with a short line connected to his upside down small triangle nose. He has small circle eyes and circle pupils. On the top of his torso he has colorful sprinkles. On the sides of his face he has whiskers, two on the left side and three on the right side. Sprinkles has almost flat feet (skinny too) and he is wearing black boots, He has short pointy ears with small inside triangles too. Good luck! Mine is kind of hard.

My monster is a ghost girl. She is a rectangle shape and has short brown hair with a red bow in it. She is standing next to a pumpkin, above her is big yellow moon and around her are stars. On her face, she has a big smile with two teeth on each side and her nose extends to her bushy eyebrows. Her eyes are brown with a small green pupil in the center and she has three eyelashes on the side of her eyes. Her skin is light blue. She is wearing an orange dress with yellow fringe on the top and bottom. That is my monster!
