This is Where the Wild Things Are!

Oh WoWSie these first graders are having some monsterous fun! Not sure what it is about these silly monsters but this unit is always a student favorite! There are so many cute books to go along with this theme. Of course, "Where The Wild Things Are" is a classic and it goes along great with our Wild About Learning school theme. Check out the new bulletin board!

Our monster glyphs turned out soooo stinkin' cute. The kiddos did a great job-LUV em! I'm amazed how different each one of them is! (In addition to the glyph below, I added spots on the nose that stand for the number of pets the student has.)

After we read "Where the Wild Things Are", we brainstormed things from the story that were real (or could be real) & things that are pretend. Click on the pic below if you would like a copy of this FREEBIE!

Check out more of my Super Silly Monster Fun unit at Teachers Pay Teachers or Teachers Notebook for more literacy & math activities!

Got a quick question...Does anyone else get emails requesting copies of files that are already accessible on Google Docs????  Can't the files just be downloaded directly from there? I feel really bad not emailing everyone the requested file but there are so many requests that I can't keep up! :(  Any suggestions?

  2. Cute stuff! Not sure about the docs..I get the same requests, but usually if I have chosen public "with link"...when I change it to just "public" they usually don't have an issue. =)

  3. It's because of the new googledocs! The new googledocs automatically saves any document that you open. Before, you used to have to click "save in googledocs" and now that button is gone. Instead it automatically saves. But...many people do not know that so they just click the only button that is on the screen...."share". When they click it, it sends an email to the owner asking if they can share it. I just email them back with this explanation:

    Hi there! I've gotten a few requests to "share" some of my downloads with you. You can go ahead and download them on your google docs by going to file {not the file on your web browser, but googledocs file} and download original. This will download to your computer! :) Hope this helps! If you have any questions, let me know.

  4. That makes sense because I got a few requests before but it has gotten crazy the past couple weeks! Just when we think we have this technology stuff figured out, they go & change it on us! lol Thanks so much Rachelle for your help!

  8. These are all really great activities! My kiddos really love the sentence scramblers. How can I create my own-or are you coming out with any more freebies??
