November Calendar Pages

Some of you might have noticed that I posted this once already!  The links weren’t working properly, and I didn’t have time to fix them, so I just took it down again! Sorry!

I have two versions of a November song for you this time.  The first is a chant, that I got many moons ago from my cooperating teacher when I was student teaching.  It’s not a song, but rather, a chant.  I think you can make up the rhythm as you go!

The second is a song that I wrote.  I couldn’t find a November song that “fit the bill”, so I made one up!  It was rather funny in my office as my husband (who is very creative musically – he is in the other room playing my fave {Brandi Carlile} on the piano as we speak!) and I tried to make up the words. 

Here are some that we decided would probably not work – keep in mind we were trying to rhyme…

creeps are crawling (leaves are falling…)

we eat turkey, beans and tators

we watch movies with Tom Hanks (rhymes with thanks…)

buying bigger pants  (in reference to Thanksgiving dinner)

So, after about an hour (and a lot of laughs!) we came up with this beauty – hope you like it Smile

  6. I was very excited to find your November songs! My overloaded brain tried to get the October song going last week, and I was so wrong. One of my boys stopped me, and got us all going in the right direction!! In this season of thanks, Thank YOU for sharing your talent in K!

  7. I'll download it and use it. Can't wait! Thanks for sharing. :) I like some of the rhymes you considered, but I love the end result! Did you ever get a list of songs ready? I remember you asked for suggestions a while ago. My music needs a update. :(

    Thanks again!

  9. My students love using the songs. They try to predict how long it will take them to learn the song and perform it without my support. I had one mom tell me her daughter was singing the October song in the back seat and she had to stop the car and ask her to do it again because she couldn't believe she spelled October correctly!

  11. Thank you so much for posting these! I have been using these in my preschool class and my kids enjoy the songs so much. I have a two year old who has amazed his parents by spelling October. I love seeing little ones learning.
