Each month this school year, I will be uploading a clickable PDF themed around that month. There will be twenty ideas on that page that will link you to a post, idea, resource, freebie, quote, etc. from my blog or store. Each month will be a new collection of ideas, both old and new, and I hope it will help make the school year and planning easier to navigate.
Be sure to download the calendar page from my TpT Store HERE each month when it's released. It's a clickable PDF, so you will be redirected to my blog, TpT Store, or another website for all of the information when you click the small image.
While I have themed many of the months around holiday items, there are also plenty of ideas geared towards other academic areas, like nonfiction, getting ready for state tests, and more. And if these don't align with your own scope and sequence, hopefully a few can add to your bag of tricks when you do cover those topics in your own classroom.
Today I'm offering the calendar of November, which you can find in my TpT Store HERE.
Monthly Thoughts: November

As with many of the holidays throughout the year, you can find coordinating Word Work and Writing Prompts, as well as QR Codes for math computation practice, Brain Breaks and Technology Resources for the season, and thought-provoking Did You Know? Facts.
You can also find the link to some of my favorite read alouds for this time of year, especially for the middle-elementary grades who may be looking for a new twist on a classic holiday.
I start delving into nonfiction in November every year, so I have linked up some of my favorite go-to resources to help including my Nonfiction Text Features packet, QR Code questions, and Strategy Posters and Brochures to help address as many angles of nonfiction as possible.
It's also a great time to get kids up and moving around, especially with the darker mornings and cooler temperatures. Try my Monster Math activities to keep kids moving, thinking, and solving, all at the same time!
There's plenty more, so take your pick and click away to find more information on any and all of the images you see.
Download HERE and enjoy! I hope these ideas will get you excited for the school year ahead!
