Where the Wild Things Are
Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are is a literary classic and a must for young readers. The vocabulary in this book is awesome and young readers will enjoy discovering the meaning. Art can be easily incorporated with this book, students could make their own "wild thing" or using certain shapes to make wild things such as a circle or triangle. This will help students develop their understanding of shapes as well.

Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

A fun picture book that was introduced to me in a Children's Literature class. It's a good book about a little boy's imagination and where it takes him. I liked how the pictures took over the space of the pages the further the little boy traveled. I definitely prefer this book over the movie adaptation.

Classroom Activities: During Methods Block, I tutored fourth graders and read this book to them. We played a short game that allowed them to create their own monster. The students were then asked to write a narrative story about the monster they created.

"Wild Thing"
Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Review:

Max has a wild imagination. So wild that his mother calls him "Wild Thing". Max creates his own imaginary world, after being sent to his bedroom for being to wild, He goes on this boat ride that takes him to be the king of the wild things. After a while he decides that it was time to go home because he was hungry so he gets back on his boat and sails back home. I enjoy this book because it will ignite some very interesting imaginations.

Classroom Activity: 

We will use this book to review our shapes. Each student will create their very own Wild Thing but are only allowed to use the shapes that are given. They will also have to follow a functional text that will tell them what shapes and color to use for what parts of the face. Using the functional text will allow the teacher to see who actually knows their shapes and can recognize the color.

Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are is about a boy who is ordered to go to his room without dinner one night. While in his room he imagines he is in a wild place full of monsters. These wild monsters demand that he become their king and the boy is full of joy until he has to sail back home. When he gets back to his room his dinner is waiting for him. This book is full of imagination and vocabulary for your students. This book can be used for literature circles or during shared reading. This will get the younger kids excited about making monsters or monster stories as a follow-up activity.
