It’s November 1st and definitely time to transition into Thanksgiving studies during school. From the time my oldest was little we have enjoyed celebrating the holidays in our homeschool by finding and completing as many related worksheets that complemented our studies as we could. So when they were little, we looked for preschool Thanksgiving worksheets like these and also these thanksgiving coloring pictures. I am so happy to share these with you!
These particular preschool Thanksgiving worksheets are a Thanksgiving Alphabet. Each half page is a letter of the alphabet with a Thanksgiving related word and picture. The word is in dashed print lines, so that your preschool or early elementary child can trace the letters with his finger and then a marker or crayon. If you want to preserve these worksheets from one year to the next, just laminate them, and have your child use write on/wipe off crayons or markers so you can use them over and over!
If you would prefer to preserve the precious memories in a scrapbook or alphabet that your child has created, mount each page on a piece of sturdy cardstock in a coordinating color, and then have the pages of your child’s preschool Thanksgiving worksheets spiral bound at your local office store, and then have your child trace them in marker a few at a time. Then you can “read” the book together over and over during the Thanksgiving season and for years to come admire his/her handiwork! You could also cut each page in half with a paper cutter, and use one strip per day from November 1 to November 26th for a light overview through the alphabet. Tracing pages like these preschool Thanksgiving worksheets is very helpful for your preschool child’s development. Not only will they be building alphabet recognition skills, they will be building fine motor skills, word recognition skills like left-to-right tracking and letter formation.
Having holiday-related pages that actually work on these skills is so fun for kids — they don’t even think about the fact that they are learning and building skills as they go. As your child finishes each page – create a Thanksgiving word wall! It will look so cute in your dining room or family room and will be a great way for them to show off new skills to family members and visitors! My kids have always loved to see their work prominently displayed on the wall to show Daddy when he got home.
