Where the Wild Things Are

Last week we did our “Where the Wild Things Are Unit”.
We started out the week by having the kids get curious with a little sign hanging outside more door that said “Let the Rumpus Begin!”
They were all soooo curious what would be going on.
I showed the kids the book and read it aloud. We went over the vocabulary for the week. Then we did all of our fun activities. Here are some pictures from our week:

You can find all of the fun activities along with lesson plans at my Tpt Store and TN store!
Have a wonderful evening!
