read alouds

Books Teachers Love: November Edition

How is it that we are already thinking about November? This school year is already flying by so fast! Anyway, the girls and I are back to give you more ideas for great read alouds in November! Be sure to hop around to each of us to grab some great ideas for the month of November.

My book this month is one that I LOVED reading to my third graders last year! These ideas are most appropriate for grades 2-4!

The book is called, "Thank You Sarah."
You can find it online for free here.

It's an awesome book that totally SHOCKS the kids! It changes everything they THOUGHT they knew about Thanksgiving!

Last year, we did a whole slew of comprehension activities with this book! It is PERFECT for synthesizing, characterization and digging into those deeper comprehension skills.

Here are a few of the activities that we did!

The kids made this simple, but fun characterization wheel.

Then, students made a little comprehension foldable to identify the main events in the story.

The next day, students answered opened ended comprehension questions in another foldable. The kids worked with partners on these and the conversations were just amazing! 

Then, there are also additional, simple written comprehension activities!
They go over things like author's purpose, story elements and even a fun activity on Mad Libs!

You can find this entire unit here.
