In November Read Aloud Lesson Ideas in Kindergarten. This blog post will give you classroom activities that you can use for reading and writing. Anchor charts, reading comprehension and responding to literature are included.
In November Read Aloud: Reading Comprehension
If you know me, you know I am a super huge fan of Cynthia Rylant. Her book, In November, is also one of my all-time favorites. The illustrations are fantastic, but we also love the opportunity to discuss figurative language. YES! Kindergarten students can work with figurative language.
We start by slowing down the text and reading it each day. As you know, our Engaging Readers lessons focus on one book per week. So we spent most of the week exploring the word choices Cynthia Rylant made.
Students also had the chance to respond.
Students also wrote about their favorite part of the book. This little friend liked the pictures the best. (Me! TOO!)

In November Read Aloud: Video
There is nothing like a book when you are working on close reading, but a video is a great way to supplement the lesson. Students have the opportunity to hear fluency demonstrated by another reader. We sure like Awnie’s House! If you are not already subscribed to her channel on YouTube, you will want to do so now! Click HERE to see her other recorded books!
In November Read Aloud: Arts and Craft Ideas
We like to put art and learning together. This torn papercraft is the perfect backdrop for our sentence study!

We also have a few other activities that go well with this book. This colorful sun catcher is a welcome sight as it turns colder.
And this Thankful card would be a great keepsake!

Here are a few center activities that you might like. We created centers to go with each of the Engaging Readers units.

It seems like we can always work on handwriting… am I right?
