Wild Rumpus Day in First Grade Wild Rumpus Activities etc. from Where the Wild Things Are...


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….
