A fun unit to accompany “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendack. The book is not included in this download, however, it can be purchased from any bookstore, borrowed from the library, or found online. The activities in this unit are designed to foster language and articulation skills while also learning from a great picture book.

I highly recommend putting each section into a page protector sleeve and then clipping all of the sleeves together. This method of organization makes it very easy to find and organize your materials.
