Where the Wild Things Are - Projects, Puppets and More

 Maurice Sendak's classic Where the Wild Things Are never fails to elicit fun, encourage retelling and invigorate imaginations. We always start with a reading then a reading with an enhanced rumpus. The students read the signs as they rumpus. "Max" helps the FDKers read through the signs before we start.

At the Fine Motor Station we put together a puppet (for a Friday WILD RUMPUS).
 Another station leads to a display over our lockers.
Our directed drawings show plenty of personality, individuality and "wildness."

 Our building station is an opportunity for retelling with lots of bedrooms leading to the world all around.
