Thanksgiving Alphabet Activity
Full Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Materials Needed: ABC Pie poem (see free download below), pie plate, 9 x 12 brown or tan colored piece of felt, magnetic letters, and a pair of scissors
Purpose: Kids will identify letters of the alphabet both lowercase and uppercase.
- Print the free ABC Pie poem (see below) and practice a few times. You may wish to enlarge the poem or copy it on chart paper for the kids to follow along.
- Cut a circle piece the size of your pie plate from the felt. This will be your pie crust.
- Gather the magnetic letters.
Ready to Play
Time to play! Have the kids decide which magnetic letter should be placed in the pie tin based on the letters you call in the poem. You can use just lowercase or uppercase letters. Or, you can mix them.
After the three letters have been added, have a child add the top pie crust (aka felt.)
-Use lowercase or uppercase letter depending on the needs of the children.
-Say the letter sound instead of naming the letter. The kids can then find the letter that represents the sound.
