Thanksgiving is almost here! Are you searching for a fun new way for your students to practice identifying initial sounds?
Want a center that is little to no prep but has your little explorers up and about?
Need a center that can be used several ways and can be differentiated?
This Thanksgiving themed 'read the room' activity will engage your independent learners and they will have no idea they are practicing identifying initial sounds in words!
They are sure to 'fall' in LOVE with this center!
The center can also be used as a 'stationary' center rather than count the room. Place cards in baskets or buckets rather than tape around the room!
It is also a perfect way to introduce little learners to 'Thanksgiving vocabulary!' Use the word and picture cards to build sentences and/or discuss what each item is/was and then have them work independently to find the cards and record the initial sound!
Use it in a fall sensory bin too! Fill your bin/bucket with artificial leaves, corn, oats, etc! Add the cards! Students can match the picture to letter cards or pick picture cards and record the initial sound letter on the recording sheet!
Use it for early finishers basket too!

Choose the recording sheet that best matches the skill level of your students- find number/write letter, find number/trace letter, write the number and letter.
