I can’t believe it’s almost November! Why do I already feel behind on Christmas shopping??!! 🙂
I’m getting together today with my Primary Peach friends to help you plan for the month ahead. Our posts are packed with FREEBIES, tips, and teaching ideas for November! We call it Sharing Sunday and I hope you’ll join us!
My collection of teaching ideas is great for 2nd and 3rd grade teacher friends. If that doesn’t fit you, check out some of the links below — I know that there will be something for everyone today! To find out how to grab any of the freebies and products in the pictures below, just click on any of the pictures.
I love to read seasonal books with my kiddos. My year-to-year favorites include The Ugly Pumpkin (early November), The Candy Corn Contest (late October through November), A Turkey for Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving Is… (nonfiction!). There are also several freebies here perfect for Reader’s Workshop!
I spend a good week working through the activities in The Ugly Pumpkin. If you’re looking for a fun read-aloud for the first week in November, make sure you check it out! There’s even a fun writing craftivity included!
Got verbs?? I combed through Thanksgiving resources on TpT and found these two gems! They are PERFECT for introducing and assessing your kiddos’ verb knowledge. I’m also including a link to my newly updated Apply the Adjective game! Your kids will LOVE playing and you will love the adjectives and descriptive phrases you start to see pop up in their writing!
Just a few fun freebies to close out this party. 🙂 I LOVE Rachel Lynette’s Would You Rather questions for my morning meeting — and my kids do too!! There’s also a gratitude journal I gave to my kids at the end of each week. It was a fun in class quick write (or time filler??) and I loved it so much I brought it back at least once a month. Their responses could be funny, sweet, or sad — but I loved the feedback they gave me and the “peek” I got into their lives at home.
I hope you’ve come away with some great ideas for next month! Make sure to visit The Primary Peach and check out what my other friends have for you!
