Max helps us infer - Queen of the First Grade Jungle

Max helps us infer

Don't you love when you combine what you love with what you have to do?? (I think most of us do that everyday by showing up to work :)!)

One of my absolute favorite childhood books is Where the Wild Things Are.

To finish up our unit for inferring this week, we decided to read the classic and see what our kids can do on their own.

Hope everyone will take about 2 1/2 minutes to enjoy the Kentucky Derby this weekend! Oh yeah, Happy Mother's Day to all!!!

  1. I love this, thanks for sharing. Another great book is Tuesday by David Weisner.

  2. I love that one too! Thanks Jennyfer!

  3. How do you post google docs in your blogspot posts? Thanks

  4. When I right click on the document I go to show details. Then on the righthand side of the screen their will be a code to embed within a webpage. Ladybug explains it MUCH better than me, but I hope that helps!!

  5. I love that you took a classic book and made a lesson out of it. This lesson uses great higher level thinking skills for your almost 2nd graders! loved the docs you posted too!


  6. Thanks Gina! I was surprised how many of mine had not heard it before. Like with most- some got it and some didn't- but those that got it, really had some fantastic writing!

  7. I to love this book. I have an easy and fun activity I like to do with my kids. First I cover the book with paper so the kids cant see the cover. I read the story with out showing the students the pictures, then I have them illustrate a picture to go with the story. Then we re-read the story to see if there pictures where close.
