Where The Wild Things Are

See full size image

We spend most of October focusing on this story since it’s a core lit book for our grade level.  We have a family project – they are asked to make a ‘wild thing’ at home with their families.  They bring it in and we decorate our hallway with them.  We also focus on descriptive words in our writing – this book lends itself to those kinds of words.  We talk about their sharp claws, long hair, yellow teeth, etc.  We make a wild thing in class with construction paper too.  We culminate it all with a WILD RUMPUS.  We have centers that revolve around the book. 

** I had a center where the parent helper re read the book and they had to write about their favorite part. 

**  Another center they had to sequence the book with sequence cards that they colored.

** In another center they decorated the crowns they made with jewels and took pictures.

** They also played Wild Thing games

**  Lastly we had a center where they got to fill a glove with popcorn and put candy corn for the fingernails. 

It was a fun day…pictures to come….
