Children's Literature

I am currently in college to be an elementary teacher. These are some books that I read as a child that I really enjoyed and ones I plan to use in my future classroom.

Where the Wild Things Are

Where The Wild Things Are - Maurice Sendak

Grade Level: Pre-K-K, 1-2, 3-5

Lexile Level: AD740L

This imaginative story is about a boy named Max who sails off to another island where he finds the wild things. He becomes their king and stays with them on their island. But after Max becomes home sick, he has to leave the wild things to go back home to his family. I would read this to my students to encourage imagination. I would pair this with a writing activity where the students had to imagine if they were to sail off, what would they encounter?
