Thanksgiving literacy and math activities for young learners

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

It's turkey time math and literacy activities

All of these activities are part of my Thanksgiving Literacy and Math Bundle unit.  ( I also sell the unit separately as Math activities and Literacy activities if you prefer) found at my store on TPT.

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.
The kids cut out pictures from magazines of their favorite foods.

They colored the turkeys by shape.

Learning to recognize shapes by coloring in the 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

And we read and colored a mini book using color words.
