Wild Things
Inspired by Maurice Sendak's Where The Wild Things Are
The Learning Station

 Listen to this song.

This song is available on The Learning Station's "Literacy in Motion."

     Pretend to be a monster. Stand or crawl, holding up hands like claws. Stomp and dance and act out the motions. Freeze for “Be still."

I’m wild, when I gnash my teeth. I’m wild, when I show my claws.
Be STILL….Now gnash your teeth.
Be STILL….Now show your claws.

I’m wild, I’m wild, I’m so wild!
I’m king of the wild things, that’s my part
Listen to me. Let the rumpus start!

I’m wild, when I roar my roar. I’m wild, when I roll my eyes.
Be STILL….Now roar your roar.
Be STILL….Now roll your eyes.

I’m wild, I’m wild, I’m so wild!
I’m king of the wild things, loved by all
Listen to me. We’ll have a ball!

I’m wild, when I gnash my teeth, and I show my claws.
I’m wild, when I roar my roar, and I roll my eyes.
Be STILL….Now gnash your teeth and show your claws.
Be STILL….Now roar your roar and roll your eyes.
I’m wild, I’m wild, I’m so wild!
