Literacy Idea: letter matching
Reinforce letter matching with this fun Thanksgiving activity. Attach a simple turkey body cutout to a wall. Then label pairs of construction paper feathers with matching letters and place the feathers on the floor. Invite a volunteer to choose a feather and then look for its match. When he finds the matching feather, prompt students to jump up and strut around the room while gobbling like turkeys. Then help the child attach both feathers to the turkey. Repeat the process for each remaining pair of feathers. For a different skill option, program pairs of feathers with matching uppercase and lowercase letters.
