Benefits of using letter find worksheets
Our free letter-find worksheets are not only a fun Thanksgiving activity, but they’re perfect for strengthening important skills.
• Letter recognition – Each page features one letter that students will search for.
• Visual discrimination – They’ll strengthen visual discrimination skills as they seek out the featured letters among a variety of other letters.
• Fine motor skills – Gripping the dot markers is a great way to build fine motor muscles in the fingers and hands.
• Hand-eye coordination – As children line up the dot marker to dot each letter on the page, they’ll strengthen hand-eye coordination.
These turkey theme lowercase worksheets are perfect for preschool and kindergarten-aged children. They can also be used with older children who may need a little extra practice with letter recognition.
PREPARING THE WORKSHEETS
Print the pages on printer paper and have kids use dot markers to identify the featured letters.
Or, you can laminate the pages and have kids complete the pages with dry erase markers or small manipulatives.
Completing the Activity
Children will search for lowercase letters which helps improve their visual discrimination skills.
As they find each featured letter, they’ll dab it with a dot marker. This practice helps strengthen motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
If you don’t have dot markers, kids can cover the letters with clear gems or bingo chips or just color them with crayons.
Some children may find the worksheets easy to complete, while others may find them more challenging.
If you have a child who is struggling to find all of the letters, you can help them by providing a little extra support.
You can do this by sitting with your child and helping them to find the letters. Or, you can give them a hint if they get stuck.
Early finishers can turn the page over and write as many Thanksgiving words as they can.
