November Centers

We have been BUSY learning all about the Pilgrims and Native Americans! I have really enjoyed watching my kids learn so much and be able to compare and contrast themselves to the children/families then.
I had all my students practice/review letter/letter sounds this week during their centers.  Even my readers need this practice occasionally-they still tend to confuse a couple letters now and then!
From the November Word Work pack
I usually don't use the activity sheets at the word work center, but this one I just had to use--it was easy for me to see who needed work on what letter! For instance...the K and Q below ;)
I actually never used some copies that I made last month (please tell me I am not the only one that does that), so my students built their Fall sentences this is still fall so I am good ;)
From the October Word Work pack
 This was difficult for some of my kids. They weren't reading the sentence to make sure it 'made sense'. This is definitely a center I will need to do again!

I have been building CVC words with my kids every week and they are becoming pros! It is definitely time for me to move on to more difficult words!
From my November Unit
 I put some of Deedee's activities in my writing center this month. Love this list one of my girls made! Thanks Deedee!
My students are making me look good with writing this year. They are seriously all becoming so independent! I had to share two writing pieces that were completed totally independently! 
(and this turkey is way better than the ones I draw!)
 I love the little Pilgrim boy below! Too cute!
 We are still enjoying our Pilgrims up on the wall! I can't believe it is almost time to pull these down and hang up some holiday crafts!! Where does the time go?


  1. I'm using your November Word Work right now in my class. On Tuesday, I had a kid hide under the table because he was soooo upset someone else got the word work tub that he wanted. My kids are seriously obsessed with these activities!! We are looking forward to a December Word Work packet ;)

  2. Emily, thank you so much for sharing that story!!! I love it!! hahaha

  3. My Kinders love love love your word work!!! They get upset if our schedule changes and they can't do them!! We are impatiently (lol) waiting for December word work!!! Thanks so much for what you do!!!
