Letter recognition is FUN when there's a spinner! This Thanksgiving resource includes 3 differentiated letter and letter sound activities. Students can work on easily confused lowercase letters or on letter sounds. Use these in centers, small groups, or as morning work.


Watch the preview video to see each of these activities in action:

Spin & Dab: Spin the turkey spinner, find the matching letter on the recording sheet, and then mark it with a bingo dot marker.

Spin & Play: Use the turkey spinner with a matching game board. You can also use the recording sheets with this if you like.

Sensory Bin Spinner Activity: Incorporates the spinners into Thanksgiving themed sensory bin play.
