We're Wild ~~ WILD RUMPUS!!!

Tuesday, October 30, 2012
So the day finally came for our Wild Rumpus!  We have read the book numerous times and done several extensions and to culminate our unit we had our WILD RUMPUS!!!  Here are some pics of our fun day!
So we set up rotations and I have parents come in to 'man' them.  Here are the rotations:
1 ~ Make a crown ( like Max ) they add jewels and then take a picture by a cute backdrop
2 ~ Listen to the story on tape and do a response sheet
3 ~ Make a popcorn monster hand with candy corn and popcorn & a spider ring
4 ~ sequence the story
5 ~ Play a fun wild thing game
During the rumpus we had....CAN YOU BELIEVE IT.... A REAL Wild Thing came by and VISITED US!!!!

Where the Wild Things Are - throw a wild rumpus in your class lots of ideas here

Of course we all had to stop what we were doing to meet her/it.  Not sure what to refer to it as. LOL
Here are some fun pics from our great day!

At the crown center the kids stuck jewels all over their crown to decorate it.
where the wild things are book study, games ideas and rotations

They played 2 games - this one involved building a puzzle - they had to roll a die and according to what letter they landed on they could put that puzzle piece down.  It ended up being a Wild Thing of course.
ALso a memory game of monsters.
