Are You Ready to Ship Your Students Off to a New World?

Yes, the last few weeks have been a long haul. I'm VERY tired, and so are the kids, but we've got a couple more school days to survive!

Are you ready to ship your students off to a New World? It's a tough time of year! Time to pull all the stops out and try some super fun, engaging activities. (Shh... don't tell them they're still learning!)

It's time to pull all the stops out! Time for high interest activities that involve conversation and movement.  Here are some ideas:

I'll be pulling out this activity from my Science and Social Studies Printables for November.

We'll also be reading informational text and learning about turkeys! (This is also in the Science and Social Studies Printables for November.)
 
 
I like to let the children work in pairs or small groups while working in these informational text booklets. It encourages conversation to discuss the information they are learning, and encourages them to use their new vocabulary.
 


Speaking of "reading with a partner", we'll be finishing up these Informational Thanksgiving Books for Visualization and Illustration that we started last week. 


I also let them loose on this Scholastic Site, which has loads of images and information about the First Thanksgiving. We are lucky to have 7 tablets and 3 chrome books for the children to use.
 

Finally, we'll be getting our reading, writing, word work, and math skills in with these Fun No Prep Activities for Thanksgiving.

Planning ahead? Check out some of these blog posts:(See the images for the links!)

Science and Social Studies Activities for November

Science and Social Studies are my very favorite things to teach! However, it's so hard to find time in the schedule to teach these. But I manage to find time by overlapping with other subjects, such as reading, and including science and social studies concepts with the calendar!  


Science and Social Studies for November: here are several Science and Social Studies activities designed for second grade, with November themes.


Here's my favorite resource for November!

I'm determined to make your life easier, and I hope this resource does the job!  I've taken many of the important second grade skills, mixed in a few November special days, and came up with these activities! There are close reading activities, mini-books, sorting activities,and even a S.T.E.M. activity to do with leftover Halloween candy corn! It's guaranteed fun for the kids, easy for the teachers, and valuable learning experiences!

Here are a couple of my favorite parts:
