November is such a lovely month with chillier weather, earlier sunsets, and time for family, but it can also be super stressful with parent teacher conferences, elections, and Halloween hangovers. All of my favorite November read alouds are feel-good books with themes of friendship, caring, and love (Who doesn’t need this right now?!), or texts that make you feel warm and safe, thinking about things and people that are meaningful to you. If you or your students are feeling stressed, sitting down together and reading one of these amazing books would be time well spent.
This is my go-to mentor text when we talk about descriptive writing, word choice, five sense writing, or just need a day when we do a no stress quick write. The kids can always think of a month that they can describe!
