Where the Wild Things Are

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!

    A friend of mine went to see it this weekend, and said it was awful, they even supposedly said a word that is inappropriate for the little ones. She also said it was kinda violent. Sorry for the bad news, I was planning on buying the DVD when it came out, but now I have to rethink it.
