Hello! Here is an AFTER THANKSGIVING activity, to help students discuss what they ate for
their Thanksgiving dinner! As with most of my products, visual support is provided with a
sentence strip containing words and symbols.
Included in this packet:
COVER PAGE (collate the pages and use this as cover page)
Food item icons: turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberries, potato salad,
gravy, corn, green beans, corn, stuffing, carrots, pumpkin pie, ice cream, rice, beef,
cake, dinner roll, cookies, ham.
Same food icons as above with blank line to write your own food names. (I’ve been reminded that there are different names based on region of some food items).
An ”I ate/I didn’t eat” sort page with a visual sentence prompt.
A plate to put the food that the child ate on Thanksgiving with visual sentence prompt (“On Thanksgiving, I ate … (with symbol reprsentation and text)).
An identical plate as above with sentence in text (”On Thanksgiving, I ate…”)
A Dinner vs. Dessert sort page.
A “My Favorite food” visual prompt page. (“My favorite Thanksgiving food is....”)_
Note: I used Poster Tack to adhere the pieces to the various boards. There are various
brands of Poster Tack (I found mine at DOLLAR TREE). You may use ©Velcro
if you wish.
Print all activity pages on cardstock.
Cut out the food items.
Collate pages with COVER PAGE on front.
Punch pages with a two hole punch on the LEFT side.
Place the food on the food storage page.

I start with the I ATE/I DID NOT EAT sort board.
I place each food item, one by one, on the question prompt “(Did you eat _________? (YES/NO).”
Help the student as needed. Prompt him/her to answer YES or NO by pointing to the icons.
After the student has placed all the items that he/she ate for Thanksgiving, transfer the
food items to the plate. With each food placement, have him/her saythe line “For Thanksgiving,
DINNER/DESSERT sort: Have student sort the food items onto the Dinner/Dessert sort page.
