November Themes And Resources Your Kids Will Love!

In November nights officially get longer and days get shorter. Check out our list of fun November themes and homeschool activities to do with your kiddos this month. With nature study, liturgical living, food, books, and learning activities we have you covered with fun homeschool lesson plans all month long.

Nature Study In November

Cooler days and colder nights reign as the last of the leaves fall from the trees. It is the perfect time to get out and explore the final days before winter. Grab your nature journal and get outside to Take a Hike Day on November 17.

Faith Themes In The Month of November

The end of the church year is upon us as we remember the souls in heaven this month. November 2 is a good day to visit and tidy graves in your local cemetery. Don’t forget to find your Advent wreath and find your candles before the end of the month. (I like to put a reminder on my calendar for Nov. 15 to make sure I am on top of this one!)

Food And Family Themes In November

Highlighted below are my family’s food favorites. I love any excuse to serve a sandwich while nachos and French Toast are regular favorites. I will get the kids to make bread on the 17th. Candy Day on the 4th is a great excuse to pull out the remaining Halloween candy and do a little candy math with it.

  • National Sandwich Day (3)
  • National Candy Day (4)
  • National Nachos Day (6)
  • National Homemade Bread Day (17)

November Field Trips For Your Homeschool Study

If you have a historical site near you related to the Pilgrims then this is the time to take advantage. Fortunately there are native american sites all over the country. This gives us the perfect opportunity to share stories of those who came before the Pilgrim settlers kids will hear so much about this month.

Crafts And Activities For November Learning

So many wonderful authors have birthdays in November. Pick your favorite and have cake to celebrate his or her birthday! I have sprinkled a few meaningful crafts throughout, but don’t underestimate the fun of watching a video and discussing together or trying the tongue twisters. Sometimes simple activities are the best!
