One of the best parts about teaching is getting to read out loud to students! The look on students’ faces when the plot thickens, the relationships they build with characters.. It all brings joy to teachers everywhere. November is a fantastic month to share unique and meaningful read alouds to students. I have gathered six of my FAVORITE November read alouds that your class will LOVE! Come dive in with me and find one (or two!) new favorites for yourself as well!
Thanksgiving Read Alouds:
Balloons Over Broadway is an adorable Thanksgiving story that takes students back to the beginning of the traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. We read and learn about Tony Sarg, the inventor of the helium filled balloons that make the parade a unique and traditional event every Thanksgiving and how the parade first came to be.
Thanksgiving in the Woods is the PERFECT book to read to your students and discuss Thanksgiving traditions. The story is about a large family who gathers every Thanksgiving with many of their extended family and friends to a Thanksgiving feast in the woods. They work together to cook, decorate, and suit up for the cold weather, all to enjoy a huge feast, fun, and celebration together. Students will absolutely relate to this beautifully illustrated read aloud in many unique ways! Definitely a must read for every classroom!
