Where the Wild Things Are | Maurice Sendak

Where the Wild Things Are | Maurice Sendak

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.

Where the Wild Things Are | Maurice Sendak

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

How I Learned Geography | Uri Shulevitz

#UCFLAE3414F19

(Author/Illust: Uri Shulevitz)

This MF is about how a young boy uses the power of his imagination to cope with his hunger and misery as he explores new and exotic places all around the world. The images are based on the author‘s own childhood memories of living in poverty as a refugee during World War II. This would be great as a RA so you could showcase all of the detailed art depicting different scenery as well.

Caldecott Honor

kgarzon https://www.rif.org/sites/default/files/Support_Materials/HowILearnedGeography-A... This teacher‘s guide is a great resource for connecting the story to geography, maps, and real places in other countries, as well a lesson in characterization.

EL Strategy 8: Use direct instruction: Modeling, explaining, scaffolding, name the strategy and show how to use it.

UDL Principle 3.3: Guide information processing and visualization.

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.

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/ 6d

#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. 6d

Journey | Aaron Becker

Journey is a Caldecott honor F wordless picture book by Aaron Becker. This book follows a young girl and her “journey” through a fantasy land. I believe this book would be great for a RT and for my students to create a script because there are no words in this book. Students can take turns being the narrators and the little girl main character.

Mwinship This website includes teaching ideas and resources that go along with this book including a book trailer:https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/journey
The EL strategy 2 and UDL guideline 7.1 about cooperation and individual choice align with this book and RT lesson I would like to do along with it. #UCFLAE3414F19

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

Lrobertson Using this book for RA, this is a link to a great read-aloud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALmNPxNehYE. UDL 2.5: Illustrate through multiple media and ESOL Strategy 14: Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant 6d

“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 6d
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) 6d
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." ?? 6d
abbie-cadabbie @lynneamch That is so sweet! 😊 6d
