Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak is about a boy named Max who is becoming very mischievous and his mom is fed up with it and decides to send him to his room. While Max was in timeout, his imagination takes him to a new world where the wild things are and Max is now in control. When he's done being king of the wild things and is ready to be a little boy again, he returns to his room, he notices that his mom is still upset with him.

olivia_danko This modern fantasy and award-winning Caldecott book would be best taught using UDL 8.3 (Foster collaboration and community) by having a class discussion about how imagination can take us to wherever our heart desires.
The ELS strategy I'd use is EL 6 (Continually monitor student comprehension) have the students read independently while spending time with each student making sure they are understanding the story.
With the following lesson:

This HF, RA Caldecott Award winning classic will be a great add to primary classrooms! Readers will follow Max on his adventure through his imagination (the theme) after he is sent to bed without supper. This book would do well as a read aloud. Reading rockets provides helpful strategies to help engage students with the text https://www.readingrockets.org/article/revisiting-read-alouds-instructional-stra...

Betrinag UDL Principle 2.1 concerning clarifying vocabulary and symbols, along with EL strategy 5- teaching technical vocabulary supporting key concepts- will further support the read aloud. #ucflae3414sp21 10mo

This Caldecott Award winning MF story is great for boosting students imagination. As students listen to the RA, they can begin to use their imagination to think of how Max is experiencing the place where the wild things are.

OliviaBuck This story follows a pattern of traveling to where the wild things are, becoming their king, and traveling home, which aligns with UDL 3.2- highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships. EL strategy 6- continually monitoring students comprehension also aligns with this RA because the teacher can pause to ask questions, allowing to monitor how students are comprehending the story. 10mo
OliviaBuck Teachers can also use strategies from https://www.readingrockets.org/article/reading-aloud-build-comprehension, such as pausing to make connections. #ucflae3414sp21 10mo

Where The Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak, is A Caldecott Award Winner, and it‘s about a young boy who lets his imagination run wild. One night, he does not want to eat dinner, so he goes to his bedroom early and imagines a world full of monsters and mayhem. They do not eat him like you‘d think, they make him king! #ucflae3414su20

CameoD UDL principle 8.3 aligns with this book, as it fosters a community feel. This book would be wonderful to have students pair and share. Esol strategy 32 would be excellent to use with this book, so students could discuss what they think. (edited) 2y

CameoD This is one of my favorite resources I‘ve found for this book. It gives students a chance to be creative and think outside the box! It also has some activities where they can move around, stretch out, and roar like the monsters in the book! https://www.weareteachers.com/where-the-wild-things-are-activities/ 2y

Where the Wild Things Are is a classic library book that would fit into every classroom library. This MF book is the story of a boy named Max who goes on an imaginative adventure into a wild forest filled with beasts. Instead of the beasts being mean and wanting to attack Max, they make him their King.
This book won a Caldecott Medal in 1964.
#UCFLAE3414SU20

AshleyH This would be a fun read-aloud book to read to elementary students! It shows them the power of a person's imagination.

Website Resource: https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/where-the-wild-things-are
This is a great teacher resource as it provides many ideas on how to connect this book to multiple subjects such as language arts and even math and science.
2y
AshleyH UDL- Activate or supply background knowledge (3.1)
EL- Give enough wait time for second language learners to respond to questions
The resource I provided gives sample guided questions. EL learners will receive more time to answer questions.

LauraLeighn Your resource is really cool, it truly has something for every subject. Being able to apply a literacy lesson to any other subject will come in really handy 2y
DrSpalding Most students say modern fantasy however I also accept realistic fiction. This would be considered realistic fiction if you believe Max is dreaming. Nice job aligning your English learner strategy to a read aloud. This has been turned into a readers theater script as well! Kids enjoy this classic. 1y

Where the Wild Things Are is an artfully drawn MF story by Maurice Sendak. This multiple award winner is the story of “wild thing” Max who gets in trouble for his behavior and imagines running away from home to where the wild things are. This story seems perfect for an S strategy in conjunction with an SEL lesson about behaviors and consequences. Resources: https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/where-the-wild-things-are
#ucflae3414su20

nquintus To coincide with the S strategy, Where the Wild Things Are presents ample opportunity to integrate visual art into English, making the book and its lessons more memorable for the students. (See resources linked above) I highly recommend using ESOL strategies 5: teach vocabulary that supports key concepts and 17: provide contextual support through visuals, gestures & realia, as well as UDL 9.2 and 9.3 regarding coping skills and self-reflection. 2y
DrSpalding I truly appreciate your focus on social emotional learning. Your universal design principles certainly match this topic. Storytelling is an excellent strategy for this book. Some consider this book realistic fiction… Only if you believe Max is dreaming. 1y

Where the Wild Things Are is a MF picture book written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. The story shares with children that it really is okay to have imagination and do a little daydreaming every now and then. #ucflae3414su20

Ameyer32 The main character “Max“ is sent to bed without dinner after causing a little mischief. Max goes on to tame the wild things in a far away land but misses the one that loves him most and heads back home after sending the wild things to bed without supper. It is a 1964 Caldecott Medal winner and the 1970 Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration as well as the 1983 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award winner. 2y
Ameyer32 This would be a great story for RT. For ELLs I would use graphic organizers like semantic mapping and imaging and help students to use them to ensure comprehension (7). UDL 2.5 could be used to illustrate through multiple media by using charts to map out the events of the story. (edited) 2y

This story is about a boy named Max who is sent to his room by his mother, but one thing we all know, every child has an imagination of their own. Max uses the time in his room to take an imaginary trip to Where the Wild Things are... #ucflae3414su20

bsiqueira The UDL strategy that I would use is 1.2 “Offer alternatives for auditory information” The possibilities are endless when it comes to performing this book. An ESOL strategy that would align with this as well is 18 by having them use TPR. Students will be so excited to physically act this book out! 2y

I used to be scared of this story growing up😂 The book is about a boy who is told to go to his room for behaving like a “wild thing”. While in his room he suddenly enters to a land filled with wild things. He then becomes the king of all wild things. This fantasy book has a Caldecott medal and would be a great IR. The UDL principle I would use is (9.1), promote expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation.

LizzettM I want students to read this and enhance their imagination. EL strategy 6, is important because this story may be confusing and it is important to track their comprehension of the story.

DrSpalding Students may also be scared and you will need to share the genre. This one could be fantasy or it could be realistic fiction. There are two schools of thought.

This is an award-winning book, and it is also one of my favorite children's books. It is about a boy who gets sent to bed without dinner. He then transforms into a magical world where he can control his own destiny and escape from reality.

This picture book and MF by Maurice Sendak is definitely a classic. In my opinion, I was never a fan growing up, I personally found the story creepy. Looking at the story now I appreciate the art and look of darkness in the book, but this would be a fun RT to have the kids dress up. The UDL I would align for this book is 1.2 to offer a new way to show a book and the ESOL strategy I would refer to is 18 to show TPR. #UCFLAE3414F19

Where the Wild Things Are | Maurice Sendak

Pickpick

I have fond memories of this F book written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. My mom used to read me this story before bed every night. I remember loving the illustrations of the wild things. This book deserved the Caldecott Medal it won. A young boy travels to a forest where the Wild Things live. He manages to become king of the Wild Things! This book would make a great RA, RT, or S.

Jgolub13 As I believe with most Caldecott winning book a great ESOL strategy would be #30 Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts
and seeing relationships. The drawings in this story will only help these students understand what they are reading. The UDL strategy Offer alternatives for auditory information (1.2) goes hand in hand with this. The alternative is the illustrations.

Jgolub13 This lesson is a fantastic lesson on using action words or verbs like they would in Where The Wild Things Are. The students will love this activity as they learn all about verbs. https://growingbookbybook.com/where-the-wild-things-are-action-word-rompus/ 2y
DrSpalding One of your peers found the same activity regarding replacing boring verbs with more engaging ones! This shows how quality children‘s literature can be used as mentor text for writing activities. 2y
