Coloring books are so much fun. Even though there are some kids who don’t love to color and will only touch crayon to paper, or maybe some that are more interested in eating the crayons than coloring with them. Either way coloring books are a great fun activity.
Coloring books are a great multi-sensory experience. With the Thanksgiving alphabet coloring book, kids can learn colors, letters, and all about the season of giving thanks.
Thanksgiving Alphabet Coloring Book
This coloring book offers fun seasonal pictures so your child can work on scissor skills, pencil grasp, and bubble letters that allow children to work on their handwriting and fine motor skills.
This half-page book covers all 26 letters in the alphabet and you can cut the pages in half when you are prepping the lesson, or you can have the kids cut along the dotted line.
All the pages print in black and white, so all the color on the pages will belong to your child.
Assembling the Book
This file needs to be printed on both sides of the paper (front and back) and flip on the long edge to print correctly.
After printing simply cut along the black center line to create your alphabet book, and staple the pages together along the left-hand side (to the left of the dotted line).
I usually find with these books that stapling them three times along the left side of the book is the easiest as this allows little hands to flip through without the pages getting ripped.
Teaching the Season
Going through the alphabet, this book covers everything from ham to jam, to yams. Yum! Yum! Along with all the yummy dishes, this book includes Native Americans, the Mayflower, and the Pilgrims.
All these pages allowing for teaching about the pilgrims and why we celebrate Thanksgiving. With so much focus on the Christmas holiday, it’s nice to focus on one of my favorite holidays.
As much as we love being outside, the days are getting shorter and more time is being spent indoors due to the weather. Coloring is a great way to pass the time and work on proper pencil grip.
