Themes for November Bulletin Boards
November has a lot to it.
Not only is it the quintessential fall month, but it is also the month of Thanksgiving (the fourth Thursday of the month).
This means you have many choices when it comes to the theme of your bulletin board.
You can always plan a fall-themed bulletin board or one for Thanksgiving (with a gratitude theme).
But you can also go for a different bulletin board theme.
Veterans Day is November 11.
If you work at a Christian school, November is typically the start of Advent (the countdown to Christmas).
US General Election Day is the first Tuesday after the first Monday of the month. Election Day for kids can be a huge learning experience!
Even doing something like a leaf chromatography science experiment could lend itself to a unique and fun November bulletin board!
Here are some other November special days:
- November 1 – World Author’s Day
- November 5 – National American Football Day
- November 8 – National STEM Day
- November 10 – Sesame Street Day
- November 23 – Fibonacci Day
- November 29 – Giving Tuesday
