Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Let the wild rumpus start!

 

Maurice Sendak

 

Oh Maurice Sendak, we love you so! The illustrator and writer (born June 10, 1928) created naughty children and lovable monsters in books like Where the Wild Things Are and In the Night Kitchen. He got his start making window displays for F.A.O. Schwarz.

Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild things are is a classic book with only ten sentences in the entire book. A young boy by the name of max is sent to his room without supper for not doing what he is being told. He travels to a land where wild creatures roam and are free to do as they please. Later in the story max is ready to go home and so he does. There, he is finally given his supper. The illustrations definitely speak for themselves and portray the story very well. I can't wait to add this book to my classroom library in the future. I would give this book a four and a half stars out of five and it is given an AD740L on the Lexile scale.

I would have my students create their own wild thing using markers and crayons to add as much detailing as possible. This would be artwork I would hang up on my wall for everyone to see for a week or so. i would also consider doing a writing assignment for the book as well. i believe there are so many ideas that can stem from an adventure such as the one that Max embarked on.

Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

This has been one of my favorite books since I was a young girl, and it still is today. This book ignites the creativity of children by enjoying reading in an imaginary world. Going along with the story, I would get the students to make a monster of their own with construction paper, colorful string, and more. I think this book is ideal for Kindergarten - 3rd grade, and is Lexile Level is 740 L.

Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2, 3-5

Lexile Level: AD740L

This imaginative story is about a boy named Max who sails off to another island where he finds the wild things. He becomes their king and stays with them on their island. But after Max becomes home sick, he has to leave the wild things to go back home to his family. I would read this to my students to encourage imagination. I would pair this with a writing activity where the students had to imagine if they were to sail off, what would they encounter?

Where the Wild Things Are written by Maurice Sendak is a 3.4 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. The story is about a young boy who travels to a land of monsters at night. He has fun, stays up late, and doesn't have to follow rules. In the end, he realizes that home is where he belong and is where he wants to be. This book could be used in the classroom at the beginning of the year to help students realize that rules are there for a good reason. This book could also be used in a fantasy unit for young readers.
