2. Write and Read the Room

A great way to get in the Thanksgiving spirit is to get your kids up and moving around the room with fun activities, such as Write the Room.

Write and Read the Room is an interactive Thanksgiving writing activity perfect for at home or in the classroom.

Your kids will build vocabulary words, and engage your in holiday writing – a must have for your Thanksgiving activities collection.

Leveled recording sheets and vocabulary words (picture cards) are included for differentiation. PreK, Kindergarten, and 1st grade students love to write and read the room

Great for your visual and kinesthetic learners. Write and Read the Room has been one of my daughter’s favorite learning activities to do at home since she was 4 years old. I tape the pictures all around the house and send her on, what she calls, a scavenger hunt.

If you are hosting Thanksgiving with kids and adults, this would be a great activity to keep the kids busy while the adults hang out and cook for Thanksgiving dinner.



3. Turkey Facts: Thanksgiving Worksheets

Building sentences: Turkey Facts s a no-prep language arts writing center perfect for November words.

Kids use word tiles to build 10 turkey facts: one sentence on each page. After building the sentence, they get to show off their writing skills!

Finish off this Thansgiving activity (printable worksheet) in a fun way by coloring wild turkeys at the bottom.

4. Fun Activity for Ted the Turkey Poem

Guys, this is one of my favorite Thanksgiving poems for kids! Ted the Turkey is perfect for Fall and Thanksgiving.

This November poetry center is the type of kindergarten reading station kids WANT to go back to over and over.

After you display and recite the poem, the students become eager to build the poem using the word cards. The pocket chart cards feather throughout an area for the kids to build and recite to the class. The word cards are part of a set when you purchase the Ted the Turkey Build a Poem.

To get even more use out of the poem, change it up the following week by personalizing the poem with student names. Oh, the turkey trouble the kids come up with.

5. Turkey Handprint Poem

This Turkey Handprint Poem is the perfect gift to send home for parents for Thanksgiving.

Simply paint the child’s palm brown, and the fingers colorful Fall colors, then press down on the paper below the poem.

Parents will LOVE this adorable turkey hand print!  If you don’t want to use paint, simply trace the kids hands, and let them color in the blank turkey however they’d like. They always turn out to be a cute color display around a thankful tree bulletin board set.

6. I Have Who Has: Thanksgiving Game

I Have, Who Has is a fun, chain-reaction, game to practice letter recognition.

This Fall themed game includes 2 sets: CAPITAL and lowercase. I Have Who Has is great as a whole class game, in small groups, or as transition activities. To differentiate, you can work on letter recognition or letter sounds. Again, friends, I am here to help make it easy to differentiate in kindergarten. 

Students quickly learn the pattern of this game, and get excited to call out their card. “I have _____, Who has____?” – reading the letters in large print, next to the colorful boy and girl superheroes. Teachers love the different colored words to help with visual discrimination. Plus, dids can’t argue who goes first, and you don’t have to make that decision! A “go” and “stop” card are included.

Thanksgiving is a fun holiday to incorporate math. These Thanksgiving Math Task Cards are the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving activities for kindergarten. I created these Thanksgiving math task cards to practice building counting and cardinality skills: counting number sets 11-20.
