Recently in my class we read Maurice Sendak’s book, Where the Wild Things Are. This is one of my favorite books of all time. Although I haven’t seen the movie yet (it just opened this past weekend), I am so excited to go see it next weekend with my dear hubby. I quickly drew a Wild Thing pattern which we painted in class and decorated collage style. This project was so much fun and the students really enjoyed it! After my aides and I put this bulletin board up, one of my instructional assistants had the idea to add a boat with a blank Wild Thing pattern to representing “Max” taming all of the Wild Things from his boat. This board turned out so cute! Here is a picture:
So–I would love to hear your thoughts on the movie if you were able to see it this weekend. What did you think? I can’t wait to see your commments!
