Here we are.... today is officially November 1st!
I love November---its the month when fall is in full effect, scarves and warm drinks are starting to make their appearances and most importantly.... it's my birthday month! Yay!!
Besides scarves, warm drinks, fall and celebrating my birthday, November is also awesome because it's when students really start to fall in the groove of the classroom. Bad behaviors seem to start settling down, students understand the rules and centers and work stations seem to start flowing nicely, with little guidance about what is expected! November seems to bring growth and with conferences right around the corner, it's nice to be able to share all the good things with parents!!
Now on to the planning of some pretty cool activities that your students will love in November! As always, Pinterest is my go-to site for ideas!! Here are some awesome ideas that I recently found!
Look at these awesome colors on the rice!!
I love the natural items found in this sensory bin!! Most of which can be easily found outside.
Here is an array of ideas to fit any of your needs!
How cute are these turkey's?? I love them! This is a great teacher-directed art lesson. This would make a great hallway display or a writing lesson below the pictures!
Here is another cute and super easy turkey craft for kids!
Here is an AMAZING list of 100 books that are great for November and fall! Take a look at these great titles!
In addition to these great ideas, I have a created a pack of "save your ink" printables! This unit is filled with sheets that will help your kiddos practice those skills that they have been working on in class. All the sheets included are black and white---no color--which saves you money!
Take a look at some of the sheets included!
I hope these ideas and my 'save your ink printables' are useful to you this month!
