Bear Snores On in November

It's November! Can you believe it? It was the first day of school a second ago and now here we are. I need to evaluate my kids for report cards this week and I'm not sure where all that precious time went. I have to say that, although I dislike snow A LOT, I LOVE November before it snows. It's so crisp and pretty and so many things are changing. This is a great book for this time of year.
As for Halloween, I did not give into the candy haze!! I worked my kids like little bees last Friday. I had to, otherwise it would have been anarchy.  Check out my little Jack Sparrow, he's so cute. I've been calling him Captain ever since.
Since November is upon us, it got me to thinking about this awesome story.
It's such a cute story and I wanted to do more with it, so I created some activities around it.
My kids have been having so much fun with this! You can check out some of their work below.
