November brings the usual Thanksgiving reading and activities, but I decided to celebrate with three different bitmoji rooms to spread out the theme goodness. This week is Polar Bear Week, so first a Polar Bear reading room! (http://bit.ly/bgsbpolar) There are even polar bear noises, which may be my favorite part of the room. I also made a room to celebrate CANDY because who doesn’t have buckets of the stuff the week after Halloween? And then there’s the Thanksgiving and friendship reading room (bit.ly/bgbsthanks). I always include both because some families don’t have big Thanksgiving celebrations.
There are several great versions of read alouds for Creepy Pair of Underwear on the interwebs, but the author’s rendition is my favorite. I made a drag and drop google slide activity to celebrate! Click bit.ly/bgbscun to make a copy to edit for your students. This could turn mathish if you add rulers and require measuring facial features, symmetry, or rotations!
Fall is the perfect time to study and appreciate the most amazing flying mammal, bats! This collection has both fiction and nonfiction read alouds, songs, drawing activities, and more. Some upper elementary educators don’t embrace picture books quite as much as I do- but these books may not be ones your students would hear without your help. They are picking more mature/challenging books- but these still have great vocabulary and curriculum connections! Push picture books through middle school! #picturebookpusher
