Setup Your Turkey Alphabet Center
For this activity you will need:
Coloring tool – crayons, color pencils, markers etc
Below are the supplies I use personally at home. After doing so many printable activities, I’ve found that it’s most helpful to always have these basic supplies on hand.

Turkey Letter Recognition Game
Print out the turkey alphabet letter cards and cut into individual pieces. I would suggest laminating them for durability.
Ask your child to pick one of the cards from a bag or from a stack and shout out what the letter is.
They will then need to hunt for that letter matching worksheet and color it in. (Alternatively, you could provide some small manipulatives to cover the letter instead of coloring it in.)
The game continues until all the letters have been found and all the slices of pie have been colored in.
There are recording sheets for both uppercase and lowercase letters. There are 2 versions of each – the ‘easy’ level with the alphabet in correct order and the ‘hard’ level with the alphabet order jumbled up making it harder to find the slice of pie that needs to be colored in.
There is also a color version of the sheets so that you can use this as a preschool Thanksgiving literacy center as well.
Extend Your Preschool Thanksgiving Literacy Center
Make the letter recognition game even harder by asking your child to name an object with that beginning sound.
You can print multiple sheets of the turkey alphabet letter cards to make it into a team game. Each team member picks a card and first team to finish coloring in all the letters wins.
Alternatively, you could print multiple sheets of the letter cards and make it into a letter treasure hunt.
