First up is a set of Monster Portraits. There are twelve monster cards. Each monster’s portrait gives a length and a width (obviously not drawn to size). Students must calculate the perimeter, or distance around the entire portrait and record the measurement. Here’s an up-close look at monster portrait #6:
Also added to the pack are a set of Monster Paths:
There are 6 cards included, with 2 monster paths on each card. Students must first measure and record the length of each monster’s path. Then students compare to determine which path is longer. Finally, students must calculate the difference between the two paths.

Have you read Julia Cook's newest book, A Flicker of Hope? It's a beautifully written story that encourages children to ask for help when they find themselves standing under dark clouds in their life. Not only does this book show children how to ask for help, but it also encourages children to be hope builders for others!
