November 2019 Activity Calendar
What can we do with a whole extra hour this month?
Happy November DreamBoxers! We are officially halfway through fall and filled to the brim with all things pumpkin! This month we have lots of exciting activities to keep you busy and enjoying all of the Autumn colors before the snow starts to fall! Get excited because we have lots planned for you in this month’s Activity Calendar!
Starting out the month on the 1st we have National Authors day! Use this day to curl up and read your favorite book – you can even try reading your story aloud for others around you to enjoy as well. As we get through the weekend, we have Daylight Savings on the 3rd. Don’t forget turn your clocks back one hour and enjoy the extra zzz’s! We then land on National Doughnut Day on the 5th! Did you know that Americans consume over 10 billion doughnuts per year?!
Towards the middle of the month we have National STEM/STEAM day on the 8th! It is predicted that 60% of the jobs created this century will require STEM/STEAM – that’s huge! Moving on, we have Veterans day on the 11th. On this day we honor those who have served for the U.S. Armed Forces. Whether it be a family member, friend, or even a stranger at your local coffee shop make sure you take a moment out of your day to thank them for their bravery and service. On the 20th we have National Educational Support Professionals Day. Our school system would not be the same without the supportive and dedicated professionals who help our schools run smoothly each and every day. So, when you get to school today, thank your secretaries, lunch staff and janitors for all that they do!
As we near the end of the month we have National Juke Box Day! Gather your friends, collect some coins and blast your favorite tunes! Then finally, we come up on Thanksgiving on the 28th. Use this day to gather with loved ones and share a meal to celebrate your relationships and life together!
As always, for more ways to be mindful of math during the month of October, download your DreamBox Activity Calendar now and use it to encourage the kids in your life to keep making those daily connections between numbers and the world around them. Happy November! Enjoy!
