Thanksgiving Literacy Activities for Preschoolers
Preschoolers are always learning. We don’t always realize it, but they are constantly picking up new information.
At my house, we say, “the recorder is always on.” You know what I mean by that. You and your spouse are talking about something and you think your kids aren’t listening, and then on the way to Taekwondo three weeks late your kid repeats that thing you had been talking about.
Yeah, I know that’s happened to you, too.
The point is that preschoolers not only love to learn, but they are always learning, (even if sometimes we don’t want them to).
So, this fall, foster a preschooler’s insatiable love of learning even during the holiday season with these fun Thanksgiving literacy activities!
There are 10 activities to choose from, based on what level of learning your preschooler needs.
These also make wonderful activities for a Thanksgiving-themed literacy center in November.
