Max is a young boy sent to his room without dinner, and with his vivid imagination becomes king of the wild things!

It‘s a mighty fun journey, but there is someone back home who loves him so... he must return to his room.

A classic children‘s story that has been shared for many years and will be continued to be shared for many years to come.

lele1432 One of my favorites when I was a kid! 1mo

Where the Wild Things Are is a MF picture book written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. This book won the Caldecott medal in 1964. This book features Max and his magical transforming bedroom. He is transported to this world filled with wild things who think he is one of them because of his wolf costume. I would use this story in my classroom as a RA or S.

carlenerubin https://www.weareteachers.com/where-the-wild-things-are-activities/

UDL: 1.3
ESOL: 46
By having the students create their own wild things characters it offers them an alternative for visual information and gives them a hands on experience.

Winner of the 1964 Caldecott and the first book I remember reading holds a special place in my heart and will hold a special place in my future class library! This MF is about a mischievous boy being sent to his room early before dinner and going into the land where the wild things are. After a crazy adventure, he realizes maybe being king of the wild things isn‘t for him. DR could be used by having Max and the wild things played out by students!

DMoux https://www.weareteachers.com/where-the-wild-things-are-activities/ This link shares 10 different activities involving arts, crafts, and writing! UDL 5.2 multiple tools for construction and composition will be used through arts and crafts activities. ESOL 30 will use drawings and art as aids to identify concepts and see relationships. #ucflae3414su19 2mo

#UCFLAE3414SU19 This Caldecott Award-winning book is a MF book that would make a great RA or S. Max (main character) goes an adventure after getting into trouble with his mom. He is sent to bed without dinner and that is when a forest grows and he becomes a truly Wild Thing. He is having fun being the King of Wild Things until he misses someone who loves him. When he gets back to his room he realizes he is loved even if he has a wild side.

DawnS This book comes in different languages including Spanish for us here locally. Using these books and this resource https://www.weareteachers.com/where-the-wild-things-are-activities/ will help meet UDL strategy 2.4 promoting understanding across languages and EL strategy 24 incorporating the language of ELLs in the curriculum. We as a class could make wild things using healthy foods and then also on the topic of health talk about emotions, like max 2mo
Macker11 I love the idea of having the books in multiple languages! Everywhere I go I have been checking out the books they offer in other languages. This book is perfect for that! I love promoting their first language during a lesson 2mo
DawnS @Macker11 I think it‘s so important to remember and I can only imagine how a child would react to actually having the book in their first language especially if they are just a beginner with limited communication 2mo
DrSpalding You are very thoughtful! Having books in multiple languages is important being that you will have children from many places in your classroom. 2mo

This classic story, Where the Wild Things Are are both written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. Max is a mischievous young boy who is nicknamed “wild thing” thing by his mother. One day, after being sent to his room for not eating dinner, his room transforms into a wild jungle! Not afraid, Max tries to tame these “wild things” and is made king! Read to find out how he accomplishes this. This would make a great RA for teachers to engage their ...

In this Caldecott Award Winner, Maurice Sendak writes a story about a little boy who rules the wild things. The imagination of a boy can go beyond the walls of his bedroom, read to find out where Max goes. This fictional story is a great read aloud for your classroom. https://www.weareteachers.com/where-the-wild-things-are-activities/ in this link you can find crafts that can be done with your classroom.

DezireeLara An ESOL strategy that can be satisfied is having hands-on-activities in the classroom. ESOL students may have the language barrier but drawings and crafts are a universal language for our students. The UDL Principle that I would use it 5.2, using multiple tools for construction and composition. #ucflae3414su19 2mo

There‘s a Sendak exhibit at the Morgan Library in NYC. The first two pieces on display as you enter are little sculptures he made as a child - here is Little Red Robin Hood. I was astounded by how delicate his lines and colors are, how diminuative the scale of the work is and how the work is contained within drawn borders

#HelloThursday
1. Item: My Providence Athenaeum poster, which reads “We can‘t get enough of reading in the buff.”
2. Tattoos: One on my shoulder (inspired by “Bridge to Terabithia”) & one on my wrist (“Where the Wild Things Are”).***
3. Receive: Print by Sally Nixon (my lookalike eating cheese snacks & reading memoirs).
4. Give: Book Darts 💘
5. Swap: See #mixtapeswap (books with a musical theme + a mixtape/cd/playlist accompaniment). PLEASE HOST!

wanderinglynn I love your Wild Things tattoo. And your swap idea 👍🏻👍🏻 Thanks for playing! 📚 5mo
monalyisha ***Part of me wants to get a third literary tattoo (which would be my 4th tattoo, overall) of forget-me-nots around my left wrist. It's the exact tattoo that the goddess Easter has in “American Gods“ (and I love Easter -- especially its association with rabbits #bunmom). But another part of me thinks the amount of tattoos I already have might be plenty. 5mo
wanderinglynn That would be a very cool tattoo. And relatively small, similar to the other two. So to me, the number doesn‘t seem too many (of course I have friends with double-digits). I am working on designing my first literary-inspired tattoo (which would be my 3d overall). But the problem I‘m having is choosing a design! 5mo

monalyisha @wanderinglynn I really like the placement of all of my tattoos right now. I like that they feel kind-of hidden/I don‘t have to look at them all of the time. 😅 I‘m running out of places like that. The “American Gods” one concerns me because I feel like a bracelet tattoo might make my arms look stumpy. Honestly, I overthink things. 😆🙈 5mo
monalyisha @wanderinglynn Excited to see what you come up with, design-wise! 5mo
sammisho That would be a beautiful tattoo. And I love the Bridge to Terabithia tattoo. I have a Pride and Prejudice tattoo on my shoulder. I would like something for Anne of Green Gables, but have no idea what I would do. Or if I really want another one. I did not enjoy the process. 5mo
monalyisha @sammisho I am FULLY in support of an Anne tattoo! I saw a temporary tattoo once that was a carrot in a lightning-bolt shape. I kinda wanted it for rabbitical reasons 😉🐇...but it‘d totally work for Anne, too! I am NOT a fan of pain (I‘d go so far as to call myself a baby), but getting tattooed hurt me way less than I expected! 5mo

Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are" is one of the most popular fantasy (F) children's books that has won the Caldecott Award for being a wonderfully captivating picture book. "Where the Wild Things Are" can be used in the classroom during paired reading (PR) activities! When I was in elementary school, my peers and I used to read "Where the Wild Things Are" to each other because we all adored this story and could not keep our hands off of

caldwellalex95 it! A young boy named Max becomes disruptive at home while wearing his wolf costume; because of his bad behavior, his mom is sends Max to bed without any dinner. Suddenly, big and tall trees appear in his room, along with grass and a body of water. Max's room transforms into a jungle as he sails to an island that is taken over by creatures called "Wild Things." Max asserts his dominance with the Wild Things, and then he begins having fun. After 5mo
caldwellalex95 spending some time with the Wild Things, Max becomes lonely and eventually sails back home to his bedroom. To his surprise, Max finds that his dinner is waiting for him. "Bright Hub Education's" website lists several activities for students to complete, individually or with a peer! For example, students can make three-panel comic strips to illustrate the sections of the story, or they can illustrate their drawings on monster-shaped pages. ESOL 5mo
caldwellalex95 strategy #10 and UDL's executive functions strategy (6.3) can apply to several of the activities listed on "Bright Hub Education's" website. "Where the Wild Things Are" is a classic book that will never go out of style. Although it became a major motion picture, the book is definitely better than the movie! This book is perfect for readers with an imagination and a strong love for children's literature. 5mo

A classic Caldecott Award winning Modern Fantasy (F) book “Where the Wild Things Are” written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak is a timeless children‘s book that embarks on a magical journey with a character, Max, who‘s refusal to go to bed causes him to discover far off lands filled with hairy, scary monsters.

Killianfig The illustrations alone make this book an instant hit for any Storytelling (S) or Read Aloud (RA) activity. The wild looking monsters would look amazing incorperated into activities such as Reader‘s Theater (RT), Dramatic Reenactments (DR), and Paired Readings (PR) in which one student can play Max and the other, the “wild things.” (edited) 5mo
Killianfig I think that visually focused teaching strategies such as UDL 1.1, 1.3, and 2.1 as well as ESOL strategies 17 and 9 would be very helpful with this book due to its intricate descriptions and linear storytelling. 5mo
WoodsKatie Where the wild things are is a classic and always something younger grades could benefit from! Great post! Excited for you to use this! 5mo
