Practice Gratefulness Throughout the Year

Thanksgiving season is a great time to talk about gratitude with children.  I made this little Thanksgiving emergent reader and would love to share it with you.  The free printable emergent readers will be a great addition to your fall lessons and Thanksgiving-themed unit. They provide a simple way to discuss gratitude.  But, don’t just use the books in November.  You can use them year-round.

How to Assemble Your Printable Thanksgiving Book

I enjoy making all kinds of learning games and activities for kids.  I don’t mind spending time constructing activities that can be used over and over again. However, I never really enjoyed assembling emergent readers.   I just didn’t like all the copying, cutting, collating, and stapling.  That’s why I created these easier-to-assemble emergent readers.

Assemble the printable Thanksgiving book with a stapler.

The little books print 4 per page.  To assemble you just need to print, place a set in a pile, staple the edges, and cut it into 4 separate readers. Check out the video below to see a quick tutorial. It will really help you if you are a visual learner

The Thanksgiving Book Is Perfect for Your Literacy Center

When you download the little book you will see that it includes a cover and 6 pages.  Print them all, or only print some.  The pages include simple, repetitive text…perfect for little learners.

A page from the printable 
Thanksgiving book - It says "I am thankful for my home?"

I also included a page without illustrations.  Kids can customize it with their own pictures and/or words.  You can even print multiple copies of this page and eliminate the other pages to let kids customize their entire book.  This could be a great keepsake for parents.

Kids can customize a page in the little printable Thanksgiving book.  This page says "I am thankful for...." and kids can draw a picture of something that they are thankful for, like a dog.
