Silly Thanksgiving Turkeys Alphabet Scavenger Hunt: Upper and Lowercase Letters
This is a fall / Thanksgiving / Turkey themed game or center. Students will find upper and/or lower case letters.
This game is appropriate both for a school or homeschooled setting. This game is appropriate for preschool and kindergarten aged students, as well as, for special education instruction. This game gets kids up and moving and prepares them for "Write the Room" activities. I've included blank cards which can be used for students' names, sight words, etc. You can use the blank recording sheets to work with your customized cards.
