Thanksgiving literacy and math activities for young learners

There have been so many fun Thanksgiving literacy and math activities popping up all over the web!  I thought I would share a few of the activities we have been doing in kindergarten.

We used our fine motor skills and clipped paper clips to the turkey.

The kids were able to use one to one correspondence and place the correct number of feathers to each turkey.

They worked on beginning sounds by gluing the beginning letter beside the picture and then printing the letter in the box beside.

We counted and tallied all the different colored feathers on the turkey and discussed which had more, less, most, etc
