One of my favorite things about October is doing a monster unit. One of my all-time favorite stories is Where the Wild Things Are. Have you ever heard this quote from Maurice Sendak:
― Maurice Sendak
He seems like he was such a cool guy. We read the story (actually I let Discovery Education read it to them-I have very digital learners this year). I asked the kids to think from the perspective of a Wild Thing and then make a picture of one using things we collected out from our playground. Now, we have a wonderfully large playground, however not many trees-so there were slim pickens. But I thought they did pretty well for their first attempt at a collage! :)
My favorite picture! Love the detail.
I would feel happy to be back with my family.
My favorite answer-that would change the theme of the story a little bit, wouldn't it?
