Last week’s Thanksgiving themed Discover & Explore was just full of so many wonderful Thanksgiving activities for kids! Because I just love integrating learning into everything, this week I’m excited to feature Thanksgiving literacy activities for children!
With so many fabulous Thanksgiving activities for kids linked up to last week’s Discover & Explore, you can pretty much find a Thanksgiving activity for any age and focusing on any skill you’d like. I’m always a fan of incorporating literacy learning into everything and was so excited to see so many language activities linked up! Not only are these Thanksgiving literacy activities great for home, but they’d work well in the classroom too!
Thanksgiving Literacy Activities and Resources for Kids
I Am Thankful Book for Children to Make from The Stay-at-Home-Mom Survival Guide
Kids always feel so proud of homemade books. This is a great way to have kids focus on thankfulness while also reinforcing their reading and writing skills!
Feed the Turkey Sight Words from Life with Moore Babies
Learning is almost always more fun when there’s some type of game involved. Kids will love practicing their sight words with this Feed the Turkey game!

I am a huge fan of felt boards! These Thanksgiving felt pieces would be great for making up your own stories or retelling all the fun Thanksgiving books you’ve read!

Multicultural Thanksgiving Books for Kids from What Do We Do All Day?
