Build and write sentences about Thanksgiving with a cut-and-paste Thanksgiving worksheet for kindergarten and first grade.

Thanksgiving Worksheets for Primary Grades

Sentences are vital units for expressing ideas. Young readers must understand that word order in sentences is essential for meaning. They must learn that directionality is fundamental and that sentences are read from left to right. This is a lot for our little learners to take in! It takes time, practice, and a lot of patience to build confident writers.

This Thanksgiving worksheet for first grade and below has been designed to introduce your students to these vital early concepts about print.

The worksheet focuses on a simple sentence. Students will :

  • Identify and color images and symbols related to the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.
  • Cut out the words that make up the sentence from the bottom of the worksheet.
  • Glue the words in the boxes provided in the correct order.
  • Write the sentence independently on the writing lines provided.

This worksheet can benefit both struggling and accelerated students! 

 

  • Do you have students in your class who aren’t ready to write complete sentences without a guide? No problem! These students are still learning about sentences by cutting and pasting the words in the correct order. Simply leave out the ‘Write’ activity.
  • Do you have students who can do it all? As an extension, ask these students to write their sentences about the picture on the worksheet.
