This week I am sharing monster-themed activities that go along with the book Go Away, Big Green Monster. The monster on this printable was created to look like the monster in the book. He is not a perfect match. I created him using shapes available in Publisher. I hope your children will think it looks close to the monster in the book.

Getting Ready for the Activity
You can get a copy of the Roll and Color Green Monster Math math activity by clicking on the underlined words to the left. The printable was created to be printed out in black and white. You will not need to send it to a color printer.
Each of your children will need a red, yellow, black, purple, dark green and green crayon. If you have Crayola 24 count boxes of crayons , for each student that would be perfect. They will also need a six-sided die.
If you haven’t read the story Go Away, Big Green Monster!, you will want to read it to your children before starting the activity.
How to Complete the Big Green Monster Math Activity
Your children will need to place their name on the top of the paper. Then they will roll their die. They will next need to identify the number on the dice. If they need to, they can count the dots on the dice.
The next step is to figure out what color goes with that number. They will find a color key on the printable.
Then they will look for all the sections of the monster that have that number in them. Children will need to color in all of the sections the color that matches that number. The areas of the monster that do not have numbers in them will need to stay white.
They will repeat the process until all of the numbered sections are colored in.
Finally, they will look at the cover of the book to see if their colors match.
