Day 4:
Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I used to march around the living room with my towel cape and growl like a wild thing. We listened to it on a cassette tape and I thought the voices were just there coolest.

My son works at a movie theatre, and gets free tickets each week. Warms this mama‘s heart when he invites me. “[I could eat him up—I love him so!]”
We both loved “Knives Out” last night. But it was the trailer for Little Women that got me LIT-erally motivated —gonna have to reread the book before the film releases for sure. Have you seen the cast?!

I would use this book in my future classroom to help children start to use their imagination and even use the book for inspiration.

A must-have in my elementary classroom! I always loved reading this book with my parents before bed when I was a child. Young children can relate to the main character and his feelings. Children sometimes feel alone and hate the reality of the life they live in. This is a great book to describe that and help young children not feel alone.

This is an award-winning book, and it is also one of my favorite children's books. It is about a boy who gets sent to bed without dinner. He then transforms into a magical world where he can control his own destiny and escape from reality. This is a great representation of an award-winning book because it depicts honest treatment on children's feelings.

This picture book and MF by Maurice Sendak is definitely a classic. In my opinion, I was never a fan growing up, I personally found the story creepy. Looking at the story now I appreciate the art and look of darkness in the book, but this would be a fun RT to have the kids dress up. The UDL I would align for this book is 1.2 to offer a new way to show a book and the ESOL strategy I would refer to is 18 to show TPR. #UCFLAE3414F19

I have fond memories of this F book written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. My mom used to read me this story before bed every night. I remember loving the illustrations of the wild things. This book deserved the Caldecott Medal it won. A young boy travels to a forest where the Wild Things live. He manages to become king of the Wild Things! This book would make a great RA, RT, or S.

Jgolub13 As I believe with most Caldecott winning book a great ESOL strategy would be #30 Encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts
and seeing relationships. The drawings in this story will only help these students understand what they are reading. The UDL strategy Offer alternatives for auditory information (1.2) goes hand in hand with this. The alternative is the illustrations.
4w
Jgolub13 This lesson is a fantastic lesson on using action words or verbs like they would in Where The Wild Things Are. The students will love this activity as they learn all about verbs. https://growingbookbybook.com/where-the-wild-things-are-action-word-rompus/ 4w
DrSpalding One of your peers found the same activity regarding replacing boring verbs with more engaging ones! This shows how quality children‘s literature can be used as mentor text for writing activities. 4d

#ucflae3414f19 Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, is a MF story of a little boy named Max. After his mother sends him to bed without dinner, Max falls asleep and his room immediately turns into a moonlit forest surrounded by a gigantic ocean. For some reason growing up, this book was not one of my favorites however the more I read it the more I begin to appreciate it. This book would be great as a RA or a LC for grades k-5.

Erinehart The UDL strategy that I think would be useful for this text is 1.2 “Offer alternatives for auditory information.“ and the ESOL strategy I found the be good for this text is #14 “Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant.“ I find this especially important for a read aloud. 4w

DrSpalding I absolutely love this resource. This book also makes an excellent readers theater but of course should be read aloud. Remember our conversation in class, this could be considered modern fantasy or some believe it is realistic fiction and that Max is dreaming. 4d

This F Cadellott Award-winning is written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. I follow a boy's journey using his imagination. He travels to aa forest and becomes king of all the wild things. Some find this story kind of creepy, but I think it is cute and shows kids to use their imagination. #ucflae3414f19

“Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak is a classic F story for all to enjoy! This tells the story of a boy named Max who escapes to the world where all the wild things are. This Caldecott award winning book would make the perfect DR for students! #UCFLAE3414F19

abbie-cadabbie The lesson plan I would pair with this story would work well because it includes ideas of what to do for different subjects including english, math, science, computing, art, music, and geography! https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/where-the-wild-things-are 4w
abbie-cadabbie The UDL strategy I chose is to build fluencies with graduated levels of support for practice and performance (5.3) because of the lesson‘s varied plans and options. Also, because this would be used for a DR which is a performance. The ESOL strategy I would use is to provide contextual support through audio visuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions (17) (edited) 4w
lynneamch When my 4-yr-old granddaughter was told she might be sent to bed without supper, she told her mom that's what happened to Max. Her mom asked if that was because Max was misbehaving. My granddaughter thought about for a minute, then replied, "The author doesn't tell us." ?? 4w

Where the Wild Things Are is a F caldecott PB by Maurice Sendak that takes readers on an adventure through a young boy named Max's whimsical imagination when he is sent to bed without dinner for being what his mother calls him, a wild thing. This book would make a great RA or RT since it has awesome illustrations! UDL principle 5.1 could be utilized for this book since it was made into a movie and EL strategy 17. #ucflae3414f19

Where The Wild Things Are is a traditional literature book written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. It‘s about a kid who‘s imagination is so big he escapes into his own world with a bunch of “wild things” that seems as if it took him over a year to get there and back but he was really just in his room the whole time. He‘s given the title of “king of the Wild Things” but after a while, he feels lonely and returns back “home”.

alexblanco This book won the Caldecott Award in 1964. The illustrations in this book are so amazing and well done, I love this book! I would use the read aloud teaching strategy for this book. A UDL strategy I would use would be “foster collaboration and community”. I would do this by asking questions like “what do you think is going to happen next” or “has there ever been a time where your imagination has taken you into your own world before?” 2mo
alexblanco An ESOL strategy I would use would be “integrate speaking, listening, reading, and writing activities.” I would use this as an activity to do with my students. I feel like it would be very fun and creative! https://deannajump.com/wild-thing-you-make-my-heart-sing/ #ucflae3414f19 2mo

Posting a photo of Roman from a Halloween past and probably my favorite costume THAT I MADE; no costume of Max from ‘Where The Wild Things Are‘ existed so I made the best costume in the land that year.

*I honestly think it‘s worth more than 25 points because this represents probably one of the last happy times together as a family before me and his dad split. And that‘s an awesome pumpkin I carved.

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, 1963. Picturebook. This book is literally everything! The author uses a great deal of color to make the pages pop and illustrations prominent. Many greys and blacks were used throughout the novel to set the magical and mystical tone. The main character, Max is portrayed different throughout the story as he is the only one wearing pure white. I think the illustrations in this book tell the story itself.

“And Grow, And grow”. I like this little moment of repetition along with the illustrations. I like seeing how the forest slowly develops in Max‘s bedroom.

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, 1963. Caldecott Medal. This story follows Max, who imagines a land of monsters and becomes the king of the land. Kids love this story and the illustrations of the monsters. Imagining is something kids do all the time so they can relate to Max.

This Caldecott winner by Maurice Sendak is about a boy named Max whose imagination takes him on a wild adventure. This is a TL book and would be best read as a RA. Standard: https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewStandard/Preview/5708 #ucflae3414f19

leximcmillin The UDL principle I would pick for this book would be 3.3, Guide information processing and visualization because the pictures in this book really help the reader visualize what the author is trying to depict with his words. The ELL strategy I would pick is #14, simplify speech by making it slower and more redundant. 2mo
Mwinship This book reminds me of my childhood! I agree this would be a fun RA to do and to include questions as you read. 2mo

This book is perfect to allow your students to let their imaginations run WILD! 😎 Great book to use for a RA. #ucflae3414f19

KevinKantola The UDL Strategy I would use for this book is 7.3 which is minimizing threats and distractions because this book may inspire a few children to get a bit out of hand so having them stay as focused as possible would be ideal. The ESOL strategy I would use is reinforce the key ideas again and again so that the students would understand what is going on in the story. (edited) 2mo

Where the Wild Things Are is a classic fantasy fiction book awarded for its creative illustrations, as well as noted for its humorous outlook on the perspective of a playful and imaginative child who fantasizes about an imaginary kingdom where he is king of the wild things. #ucflae3414f19

YvetteE The provided link through Literacy Central includes themes that can apply to UDL 9.2, facilitate coping skills and strategies, which could be a discussion piece in a kindergarten to a third-grade setting. The website also provides two read alouds, 2.5(illustrate through social media) along with vocabulary building activities(2.1, clarify vocabulary and syntax). These activities can also be used as the ESOL strategy, use preview, and review. 2mo
