Where the Wild Things Are

Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Grade: 1st


This book is a great way for students to learn to use their imagination just like Max. Max creates a world to go to when he feels wild. Before I read this story to my class, we will complete an anchor chart together discussing what we do when we feel wild, such as jump on the bed. After we read the book, I will then have my students close their eyes. I will have them imagine a make believe world like Max did. I will encourage them to use their imagination and be creative! Next, I will tell them to think of things that they would do here. The class will share their answers. Finally, we will make our own Max. Inside Max, we will write about our make believe world. We will write about what it looks like and what we will do there. Students will then draw their world and them being wild in it!
