Miss Sofia selected Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are for this book club discussion (each member selects a book of her choosing). On arrival members had their pictures taken disguised as a wild thing.

Then, borrowing from Mrs. Lemons’ blog, Step into Second Grade, we discussed activities we do when we are feeling wild. After brainstorming, members wrote their personal wild activities on this FREE printable and decorated the top of the monster’s head before attaching.
While chowing on a meal we thought protagonist Max would enjoy, ham and cheese sandwiches and watermelon chunks, my 3rd grade facilitator reread the book to members in preparation for an oral quiz. For dessert, layer cake and ice cream seemed appropriate because this is what appears on the table in Max’s room.

After dessert, the remainder of book club was spent being wild.
