Here are two simple black and white templates for class books based on the poem "November"– a NOvember Book and a YESember Book.
After reading the traditional poem students can contribute a page that illustrates something that is no longer around in November. Students can then put a positive spin on the poem and make another class book, called YESember, which is full of things that CAN be done once November arrives.
A pocket chart version of the poem is also included for shared reading.
No green grass
No blue sky
No bare feet going by
No more leaves on the trees
A simple activity that celebrates November with poetry, writing and illustration. See more info at this post: http://www.kidpeopleclassroom.com/2014/11/november-yesember-books.html
