Books Teachers Love {November}

Guess what friends? I am now part of the amazing group, Books Teachers Love! I am so thrilled to be joining this group of fabulous teachers and friends! WOO HOO!!! This month I am giving away one of my favorite reading group stories plus a free rhyming product that I made to go along with it so that you can try it out in your classroom!

This book, Oh My, Pumpkin Pie is one of my favorites to use this time of the year for guided reading. It has all kinds of good stuff from rhyming, to vowel teams, and even a lot of sight words! Plus, the illustrations are so cute and the kids love it!

 After reading the story, we complete a rhyming word matching activity. There are several different pumpkins with rhyming words that the kids have to match. You can do this together or use it as a center for independent practice for your students.
If I am using it during guided reading, after the kids find a match, we go back into the story to find the matching words and look over the short/long vowel sounds together. You can grab this rhyming activity for free HERE

Don't forget to enter this month's giveaway for a chance to win a copy of the book I showed you, plus three other great ones for fall!

  1. I think I need this book for my groups next week! I just love a good seasonally themed guided reading session!

  2. For a moment, I got so confused with November - I'm still not sure if it's meant to be October or November, LOL :) Love the book that you chose and the activity with the pumpkins looks adorable!
