Home School: Where the Wild Things are

Where the Wild Things Are 


This past week we read Where the Wild Things Are
Here are some of the activities we did to go along with the story book. Most of these ideas I got from 450 More Story S-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-r-s (Stretchers) for the Primary Grades: Activities to Expand Children's Favorite Books.


We made monster paintings


We made monster masks


We also made some music makers.
and had a wild rhombus dance party (basically we played freeze dance).

Our week reading where the Wild things Are was so much fun. We ended with them re-telling the story to me. It was neat to see how they could remember all the little details with such enthusiasm.

Keagan really wanted to watch the movie, but it hasn't come into the library yet.
I guess we will be doing a movie night when it does:>

One funny thing that happened this week was when I told Libby and Keagan we were going to make musical instruments. They got so excited and Miss Priss yelled "We're going to make a radio?". She really thought mommy was busting out electrical wiring & equipment. I couldn't stop from laughing. I am glad she believes I can do anything, but make a radio? not in my repertoire  :>
