Free Thanksgiving Worksheets for Kids

Well, my timeline is a little bit strange.  I have already started posting Free Christmas worksheets for kids…  I somehow missed Thanksgiving.  EEK!  My profuse apologies – I am definitely not one of those people that likes to skip over Thanksgiving.  In fact, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays!  I love Thanksgiving because it is a day devoted entirely to being thankful to all of the blessings in my life!  It is a day devoted entirely to being with family and friends, and it is a day devoted to the bountiful harvest.  The way to my heart is through family and food!  So, without too much ado, here are a few free Thanksgiving Worksheets for kids.
Before we get started, though, I always like to give some book recommendations!  Here are a few great Thanksgiving books for kids:  I love the Pete the Cat book, it is a great teach tool about the Pilgrims journey on the Mayflower and the First Thanksgiving.  I also love the Turkey Trouble book…  What is a Turkey to do when he knows he will be dinner?  Lastly, another favorite is the “There was an Old Lady” book…  My kids love the series.  This one is actually more realistic than the others….but, nonetheless it is cute!

Handwriting Patch Curriculum
Teach a child handwriting AND drawing using our handwriting curriculum.

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound ReadingMrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.

    Thank you for these! My timeline is off too! I just found these the day after thanksgiving. They are great though! I’m off to check out your Christmas stuff:).

    1. I am glad you found them. Please come back starting Monday we will have many giveaways and freebies that will lead us all the way up the Christmas! 🙂

  2. Carol Fransen says:

    I do not like having to download apps in order to get free items. Please take me off your E-mail list.


    1. You should not have to download anything to get our free things…you likely clicked on an ad… to get our free things you just enter your name/email into the blue box and it will be emailed to you. I will remove you from our list… but, my guess is that you clicked on an ad for an app or something because we require no app download/software download.

      That’s really impolite and ungrateful that this person feels like this. I can feel all the LOVE and time that you put into making life so much easier for us as parent’s or teachers. I’m grateful for All you do for us, and I’m sure I’m not alone. Thankful for being a special Blessing and sharing with all of us.

      1. Aww, thank you so much! 🙂 It makes me smile to help parents and teachers. 🙂 Enjoy!

  3. i received the email with the link for the free worksheets but when I click on the link, it takes me to this page and then I can’t find a link with the worksheets. I am not sure what to do.

    1. So sorry you had trouble. Did you enter in your email into the form so that the freebie is sent to you? (There is usually a blue, or white box that says name/email in it where you enter in your information and the freebie is automatically sent). You have to enter your email into the form each time so that the correct freebie is sent to you. (You are not re-added to the email list -the system is smart enough to know you are already on the list).

      Did you get the email with the link to the freebie? Sometimes things go to the spam box. I have 2 different servers…one that sends the freebie and the next one signs you up for the newsletter. If you got an email from me that did not have your freebie you requested, it means that the freebie email was sent -but likely went into spam.

      If you got the email with the freebie link in it…can you click the link in the email? If you can click the link, then your freebie will either download into your download folder or it will open in a new tab in your browser. Did you check your download folder? That is where the download will go once you click the link. Did you check a new tab in your browser?

      Another common problem is sometimes you get the email and it has the link -but it is not hyperlinked…in which case you have to copy/paste the link into the browser and it will download into the download folder.

      Anyway, have you tried those things and are you still having trouble? If so, just email me: [email protected] and I will attach it for you.. I first try to troubleshoot the common problems so you can learn the process and then if you still have trouble, I am always happy to help you resolve 🙂
