A few weeks ago, I was asked by a few people online if there was a way to teach App Smashing to PK-Kindergarten students without using dice. It just so happens I was working with one of my PK4 teachers from a Pinterest post called: “Feed the Letter Monster.” The concept was that students were given a word that could be an: adjective, noun, verb, adverb, etc and they would have to take bottle caps that had letters on them and put them in a box that was dressed up to look like a monster. I decided to take this concept myself and over the last few weeks I had been collecting bottle caps from home, co-workers and family members. I took the caps and used some recycled paper to print out various Apps on each one and attached them to a side of the caps. You can also use marker in this case. I then took an old mini storage case and using some label makers and markers turned it into the App Monster.
