I’m always SO grateful for the educators who share their materials for free! I thought I would update a post from last year to include some new materials from around the web.
This tot activity caught my eye — it’s very cute and is free over at Totschooling.
Cute Turkey Math Game:
The matching activity above reminded me of a game I played with all three of the kids when they were each in preschool. I got the turkey print outs from mathwire.com. I used some craft cubes and wrote numbers on the dice, 0-5 on two and 6-11 on the others. It was good practice counting for my preschooler. I made the spinner using a template online which I printed on cardstock and glued on cardboard. I put a brad through (it’s sticking up a bit) and used one of the laminated turkey feathers which I cut down to size, and put a hole punch as the spinner’s arrow. I wrote in “odd,” “even,” “less” and “more.”
And here’s another free printable Thanksgiving pack offered by the Multitasking Mom.

I was looking for some Thanksgiving themed math materials for my kids and came across a number of free games and printables (most are from TeachersPayTeachers which you need to register (free) to be able to download). We have taken a number of pages for ED’s kindergarten math from Royal Baloo’s Thanksgiving Math Pack
Use a hole puncher to poke out the right answer: Addition Pumpkin Poke with cards like these (with cards all the way from 1+1 through 12+12):
Here’s ED doing one of the problems:
Fields of Sunflowers Mental Math (a board game to practice addition problems mentally such as 26+50 or 644+200)
I used the cute turkey page from the pack: Turkey Counting Ten Frames and Addition for some dice-addition practice
Multiplication Game: Thanksgiving 5-in-a-RowThis game is SO cute! DD and LD will be playing this to keep on top of their multiplication facts:
Roll the die twice and multiply. Try to get 5 in a row before the other person!
Holiday Review Pack (Percent, Fractions, Decimals) for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas
This was tricky for DD, but LD finished it within a couple of minutes:
Turkey Fraction Cards (find all three that match)
I also made some new skip counting mazes for my daughter to practice her 2s, 3s and 5s
I also made some Thanksgiving themed Number Family Sheets and basic addition matching (turkey to feather)
