Every year, when November rolls around, I am just as shocked as the year before… wasn’t it just the summer? What do you mean the holidays are only a few weeks away? I feel like once August hits and we go back to school, the months fly by! But we can all agree that while the months may fly by, the days in the classroom can slowly creep along. Luckily, November is filled with a few extra days off of school! Plus, we can unlock a learning adventure with our seasonal-themed Pre-K Math and Literacy Centers to keep our students active and engaged during those long days.
We start off the month by recovering from Halloween. Then, we begin to discuss and learn about Veteran’s Day. We talk about and explore the importance of the day with this Veteran’s Day Emergent Reader.
After Veteran’s Day, we start to prepare for Thanksgiving! I just love this holiday. There is something about taking the time to think about and discuss everything that we’re grateful for that just fills my heart with so much joy. Our littlest learners share their gratitude with this I Am Thankful turkey activity and our thankful turkey craft. Books from this collection of Thanksgiving stories are a great way to start the conversation!
My favorite November learning themes include turkeys, hayrides, pumpkins, scarecrows, and football! But I especially like focusing on turkeys. In science, we learn all about wild turkeys in this animal study. We enjoy our turkey pre-k centers with activities like this turkey name building. And of course we have to make something adorable to send home before Thanksgiving break. This paper bag turkey craft is always a hit!
When it comes to reviewing math and literacy skills with my students during this time of year, I never use anything other than these November Pre-k Math and Literacy Centers. The centers come with everything I need to make learning fun during November. The activities are truly the best math and literacy centers for pre-k in November, and your lesson plans for the month will be so easy to fill up!

Using the November Pre-k Math and Literacy Centers
Once you purchase and download the bundle of November pre-k centers, you’ll be able to look through everything that you now own!
I always suggest starting off by looking through and familiarizing yourself with everything and taking notes of what you plan to use right away. There are so many options within each resource, including both color and black & white versions, so it’s a good idea to look through and decide which option you’re going to print and use.
Once you make a list and start printing, separate the activities into piles of what needs to be copied, laminated, cut, etc. Remember that the more activities you laminate to reuse, the less prep the centers will be next year!
Probably the best piece of advice I can give you when using these centers to review your pre-kindergarten November lessons is to model, model, model. Model how to use each type of center for your students, and set clear and concise expectations for using them. This will help your littlest learners be more independent while they are working and playing.

Literacy Puzzles and Write & Wipe Activities
The November literacy centers for pre-k come with two puzzles and two write and wipe activities. The two puzzles will help your students review alliteration and letters. The two write and wipe activities will help them review letter sounds and rhyming. These centers are great to laminate and reuse year after year.
Writing Center Materials
The center bundle comes with four sets of writing cards to keep your November writing center fresh and engaging all month long! The topics of the cards include Family and Friends words, Thanksgiving Food words, Then and Now words, and Woodland Animal words. You can put these word cards in your writing center with the differentiated writing paper options that we provide to you, and then let your students use their imagination to create incredible November-themed drawings and writing!
The November poetry centers come with four complete poetry sets. Three of the poems are original poems written about Veteran’s Day, turkeys, and gratitude, while the last poem is a familiar nursery rhyme. Each poetry set comes with a poetry journal and notebook full of age-appropriate activities and materials, as well as a pocket chart activity to go along with the poem.
Pocket Chart Activities and Match-Up Activities
Pocket chart and match-up activities are fun hands-on learning activities for kids of all ages, but especially for our pre-k little ones! The November activities include a sequencing activity where students can practice retelling the steps of cooking a turkey, a sentence scramble activity, an editable sight word hide and seek game, and an initial sound match-up game.
Pre-k Math Activities for November
Math Write the Room Centers
There is no such thing as too much turkey math for pre-k, right? Right! The four November write the room math activities are way more exciting than just having your students remain seated to do a couple of November math worksheets. The write the room activities will help your students review comparing size, sorting same or different, ten frames, and writing numbers.
Math Write & Wipe Activities
Write and wipe activities are perfect for math because the kids can practice the skill over and over again which helps them better retain their new knowledge. The four November math write and wipe activities review these skills: drawing a picture to match a number, numbers to 10, shapes, and sorting what doesn’t belong.
Math Puzzles and Match-Up Activities
The two math puzzles and two math match-up activities are going to be your new favorite hands-on math centers for pre-k in November. You’ll love how much fun your students will have while they’re reviewing equal groups, numbers, counting, shapes, and patterns.
I love to use simple games in the classroom that help my students review their math skills. These dice games are perfect for that! The center bundle includes a Build a Turkey game, a Color by Code game, a Roll and Cover/Color game, and a Roll and Graph game. Many of these games can be made reusable so that you don’t have to prep each year!
If you’re looking to increase your students’ social skills while also having them review their math skills, the four partner games that come in the math and literacy centers for pre-k for November are going to be just what you need! You’ll have access to a board game that reviews 2D shapes, a spinner game that reviews patterns, a race to the top game that reviews reading numbers on dice, and a card game that reviews subitizing.
