As Thanksgiving approaches, it’s time to add a dash of Thanksgiving excitement to your kindergarten classroom! What better way to engage your little learners than with a variety of Thanksgiving printables and Thanksgiving worksheets that cover both literacy and math skills? In this blog post, we’ve curated a list of activities designed to enhance your students’ abilities in sounding out CVC words, building vocabulary, and exploring early math concepts. Let the Thanksgiving fun begin!
Thanksgiving Printables Sounding Out CVC Words
Thanksgiving printables can make phonics practice a blast! Encourage your students to sound out CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) words with colorful and engaging images. This printable with pictures of Thanksgiving items and corresponding CVC word blanks, encouraging kids to fill in the missing vowel sounds to complete the words. This hands-on activity is not only educational but also a fantastic way to embrace the holiday spirit.
Add a layer of rigor and differentiation, check out this real and nonsense word response sheet. Once students build CVC words and sound them out, they can write the real words on the real side and silly words on the nonsense words side.
Thanksgiving Printables Writing Prompts with Labeling and Writing:
Enhance your students’ writing skills with Thanksgiving-themed writing prompts that encourage both labeling and writing. Create three sets of writing prompts, each with a different focus. Your students will love these writing prompts and word wall options.
Examples could include Label the Parts of a Turkey. Students can use this Turkey Word labeling word wall. In addition, your students can complete one of the matching labeling Thanksgiving worksheets, or one of the other three Thanksgiving printables that match.
In case you need more, check out this Pilgrim boy printable option with a word wall and matching labeling printable. In addition, check out these Thanksgiving printables.
Yes, here is a female pilgrim option as well. Additionally, we have provided you with four more word walls; Thanksgiving Feast, Mayflower, Pilgrim Jobs, and Plimouth Plantation theme.
Sidenote, I didn’t know that for years, the word we know as Plymouth was originally spelled as Plimouth. I highly encourage you to visit this site and find out more about Plimouth Plantation. Additionally, we use the book The Pilgrims First Thanksgiving.
Here is a Youtube link to a Virtual Field Trip to Plimouth Plantation.
Thanksgiving BINGO Cards
Bring the excitement of BINGO into your classroom with Thanksgiving-themed BINGO cards. Check out these Thanksgiving worksheet options. Image using this game board for CVC words, rhyming words, numbers, or even high-frequency words, students can mark the corresponding images on their cards. This game not only reinforces vocabulary but also adds a fun, interactive element to the learning process. We have Thanksgiving Printables that are colorful and black and white. Additionally, we give you these fun cover-ups.
Rhyming Word Matching and Thanksgiving Printables
Thanksgiving rhymes? Absolutely! Have your students match the rhyming words and, for an extra challenge, ask them to create their own rhyming pairs. This activity not only enhances phonological awareness but also adds a delightful rhythm to your Thanksgiving-themed lessons.
We love to work on this calendar using a pocket chart. Additionally, snag these two versions of rhyming words with these rhyming Thanksgiving printables.
Number Word Matching and Comparing Numbers Activity
Incorporate a touch of math into your Thanksgiving celebration with number word matching and comparing activities. First, check out this pumpkin pie matching activity. Read the number word, then, find the matching number to put in the box. Finally, match the whipped topping pie to match that number.
Another option is this colorful number word and ten frame matching activity. You can print out 6 color-coded sets.
Additionally, check out this Thanksgiving activity where students can compare the quantities of different elements using mathematical symbols (greater than, less than, equal to).
