November activities and preparing for December!

Wow! November is gone!! I had a great Thanksgiving weekend-lots of friends, family, and shopping!! We didn't decorate yet but are going to start next weekend! 
I had a lot of trainings and meetings to attend during November so it was hard try to get everything done that I wanted to...I will say that my class had a lot of fun learning about Thanksgiving, Native Americans, and the Pilgrims. Scholastic has on their website a virtual tour of the Mayflower, Plymouth Plantation, and the Native Americans. They loved watching those and then recording what they learned!
Here is an activity I did-I found these Native American symbols in my November folder-the kids used them to make "head dresses"
We the made butter!! It was good!!
Shaking the butter!!!

We also made a bat informational book as a whole class as an introduction to when ey create their own informational books
Our Thanksgiving word list
Here is a great product from Jennifer Drake over at Crayons, Cuties, and Common Core-here is the link to her store?blog

She has AMAZING interactive notebook resources!!!
And here are some verbs we did in Spanish!! This is from my "Yo pueda escribir oraciones" packet from my TpT store

Now last but certainly not least, TpT is having their cyber sale tomorrow and Tuesday!! My entire store is on sale and I added 4 new December resources!! Go visit my TpT store and check them out!!! Can't wait to use them! 
This is a busy fun and exciting month!! I'll be back next week!!! Love this time of year with my family!!
Happy teaching!!
