If you’re looking for targeted phonics activities this Thanksgiving, this resource is for you! These activities are NO PREP for you, yet festive and engaging for your students!
Best of all, there’s an array of activities to meet your students right where they’re at, boosting their phonics and reading skills ASAP.
What are the Thanksgiving Phonics Activities?
Students love themed activities and teachers love when students can practice targeted skills.
But that can be so tricky when our students need to practice DIFFERENT phonics skills. This is why I created this resource!
With this bundle, you can differentiate for your students at ease!
There are 4 separate packets in this bundle. Each packet is targeted, but the activities and formats remain consistent between the sets.
The four individual packets in this bundle include:
- Beginning Sounds
- CVC Words
- Digraphs (CCVC and CVCC)
- Blends (CCVC and CVCC)
ALL of the activities in this Thanksgiving Phonics Bundle are NO PREP.
Why These Thanksgiving Phonics Worksheets?
All the pages within the multiple phonics skills resources were purposely designed to be clear and engaging.
Within each page of this 25-page targeted packet, students practice phonics skills in isolation, in real words, in a sentence, and in a story. It follows this method of teaching phonics. (Which by the way, is extremely efficient!)
Students are able to practice important phonics skills with activities such as decodable sentences, decodable mini books, themed cut-and-paste worksheets, and so much more!
The Thanksgiving themes include pumpkins, leaves, harvest foods, cooking, baking, and A LOT of turkeys!
