Alphabet Fun For Thanksgiving

If it is November, it must be time for thinking about home, family, and food. We have 2 freebies from the Alphabet Art books to get you started.

"H is for Home" uses the Upper Case H to make a house.  The doors and windows open so you can see family and friends. For the little ones, practice writing their address and phone number on the roof.  (Click Here for freebie)

The lowercase "c is for cooking" features an excited chef ready to make Thanksgiving dinner. A circle time poem and writing prompts for older kids are included.  (Click Here for freebie)


The perfect read aloud is "Alligator Arrived With Apples - A Potluck Alphabet Feast" by Crescent Dragonwagon. 

Using fun illustrations and wonderful alliteration, the animals all arrive with edibles via wacky modes of transportation. 

There are great writing spin off opportunities for older kids; asking them to use nouns, verbs, and adverbs to create their own animal feast. An example: "Llama lugged lemons, limes, and lingonberries.”

So keep the brain engaged and build some fun holiday memories with these projects!
