Pre- K– JJ reads Monster Visits the Land of Colors to the children. Pre- K Children are asked to color Monster with the correct colors. Next, they will be allowed to color Monster whatever color they want to.

Kindergarten – JJ reads Monster Visits the Land of Colors to the children. They will be given a choice between two scenes (a mountain scene and a beach scene) and asked to tell a story about Monster. They can color Monster any color, because this will be their adventure and their Monster.

First Grade – JJ talks a bit about writing the book. He introduces the people involved as well as the use of story boards in telling a story. He reads the book and asks the first grade children to choose between the two scenes and write a sentence or two on each scene and color the story boards any color they choose. There will be a total of three scenes or story boards.

Second Grade – JJ goes into more detail about writing the book. He talks about what is involved in writing a story and publishing it. He reads the book and asks the children to choose between the two scenes and write two or more sentences about each scene and color the story boards any color they choose. There will be a total of three scenes or story boards.

Third and Fourth Grade – Very similar to Second Grade, JJ provides more details about writing and publishing the book. He reads the book and asks the children to choose between the two scenes.
