My Printable Thanksgiving Literacy Activity
Have you been searching for the perfect printable Thanksgiving literacy activity to do with your preschool students this November? You’ve come to the right place! My printable Pluck the Feathers Literacy Activity is fun, engaging, and filled with letter learning opportunities.
You’ll get printable turkey letter match worksheets featuring lowercase alphabet letters and a variety of turkey feathers featuring uppercase letters. Plus, an adorable printable turkey missing his feathers.
Preschoolers will “pluck” the uppercase letter feathers and color the corresponding lowercase letter on their worksheet.
This is such a fun way to practice identifying uppercase and lowercase letters! You can even use this activity to practice letter sounds and early phonics with your preschool students.
For the best results, grab a plastic strainer to stick your feathers into.
This hands-on Thanksgiving literacy activity is perfect for fine motor practice, too. Preschool learners will get lots of practice using a pincher grasp to pluck feathers and practice with proper pencil grip as they color each lowercase letter.
Turkey Letter Match Activity Ideas
There are all kinds of ways you can use this printable turkey letter match activity with your students. Another fun idea would be to hide the feathers in a Thanksgiving sensory bin. Then, students can search for the hidden feathers and restore them to their turkeys.
Alternatively, you could get your preschoolers up and moving around the room by hiding feathers everywhere. Have students search for all the feathers their turkeys need and color the letters they find on their Thanksgiving literacy activity worksheet.
