    Me too! I have small ones, but I already used them to make a poster. I want big ones to display on the wall....

    Anybody???????

    I got them from another teacher who has taught awhile, so I think they are old.

    I have them in my room. They were in there when I got the room. They really look like they were homemade. They are construction paper cut-outs that have been laminated.

    Wow, I can't believe more people haven't seen or heard of them. They are sooo cute and great visuals that help kids remember colors.

    I guess I will have to tear my poster apart and blow up the pictures of the monsters. I wonder if this will work.....

    I saw the monsters before on the kcrew website, but I didn't realize there were different sayings. Does anyone have a whole list of the poems? I could draw the monsters myself I think. Those are really cute.

    ok, soooooo what are your songs?????????

    Anyways, I got a big response to send the color monsters. It's easier just to post them and you can get them if you like.

    I have a yahoo group called kinderfirst. you can go there. They are posted under the FILES section of the group. They name of the file is Color Monsters.

    I just love them!

    oh those are cute. I don't think my new district has those and I certainly won't spend $200 just to get the CD.

    The CD by itself is 14.99 and you can just sing along or make posters of the song yourself. I love the Frogstreet Live DVD too, it is a song for each letter of the alphabet putto animations. Lots of schools have the CDs/Big Books, but the DVD is new. I use it as an introduction to each letter as we learn them and a review at other times.

    We use a different version of these monsters that we introduce at the beginning of school. They all have a story about them and how we hope the children won't be like that certain color.

    Rudy Red: Always rude to others and interrupting.
    Yelling Yellow: Yells all the time
    Outburst Orange: Always yelling out, not waiting their turn
    Greedy Green: Won't share
    Bossy Blue: Bossing others around
    Pokey Pink: Walking slow, etc
    Whiney White: Whiners :)
    Tattling Tan: my favorite!! :)
    Gross Out Gray: Someone who doesn't wash their hands, or doesn't take care of themselves.


    I can't remember purple, black, or brown. I will find them tomorrow though! Has anyone else heard of these?

    oh, please see if you can find it and let us all know. We would all love to know them.

    I'm not sure if I get he connection with some of them though. Like Bossy Blue - what does that have to do with him getting sick with flue.

    By the way, I asked an older teacher at school today had she heard of the color monsters. She had but she did not have any info on it. She DID give me two different sheets that are related - shape monsters and number monsters!!!! The sheets said that the publishers were Monday Morning...I wonder if they have the color monsters, too.

    wcvetwife, the copyright on these that I have are 1982 by Milliken Publishing Co.

    Anyone even heard of that publishing company. I don't even know if they are still in business.

    Monday morning was the publisher for the number and shape monsters. I found them online and ordered a catalog.

    These are stories about how they act in school. Like Rudy Red is rude and mean to all the other children. She doesn't use manners and doesn't say please and thank you.
    Bossy Blue tells everyone else what to do. He pushes people around and acts like he is in charge. I'm going back to school today to look for them. As soon as I find them I will post all colors and their stories!

    If they were published when the Color Monsters were that was nearly 30 years ago. They may not be available anymore. I couldn't find Color Monsters ANYWHERE else.

    But I don't know if they are the same since Color Monsters were published by Milliken Pub.

    wcvetwife, I just don't think these products are made anymore. That's why there are impossible to find. I got my color monsters from a teacher who got them from another teacher that has taught for ages....... Even the teacher I got them from has had them for 15 years and they were old then.

    I use the color monsters every year, except the students make their own book. We do a page a day and "color" the monster various ways. Sometimes we use paint, or glue on various materials.

    I checked out the ones posted on kinderfirst. My white one is different. Mine is crying and it says, "White, white, broke his kite." (Must have been updated kind of like the Letter People were a while back.) Our team added a rainbow monster and it says, "Rainbow, rainbow, show what you know."

    I love starting out the year with the color monsters!

    yeah, yeah I know. I have heard a comment or two on the whole Black, Black is a quarterback. I didn't get it until someone mentioned why it could be a problem.

    But I still use them. I don't think it's to scary. Our kids come dressed as vampires. So, I relate it to halloween.
