My Trip to Where the Wild Things Are

I've been reading this classic book by Maurice Sendak to my first and second grade students. They're excited about the movie, and so am I -- but movies like this are always better when you've read the book first.

After reading the story, I ask them to put themselves in the story. What do they think would happen if they went to Where the Wild Things Are. They're still working on their stories and drawings, but mine is finished, below. Later this week I'll post some of theirs on my teacher website. They're looking great!

Awesome! I just read it for the first time (that I remember) Tuesday :-/

It's difficult to keep up with you! Great work.
What a great lesson - I see why you were excited to try it yourself. We are all anxious to see the movie version of the book, too. (I could see my drawing class doing this . . . mmmmmmmm?)
