Holidays are some of the best times of the year so it just makes sense to pair up learning and educational resources to go along with them!

What is the educational benefit of this printable?

These worksheets will help your little ones work on their handwriting skills as well as working on fine motor skills, too. Learning how to hold a pencil, how to write properly, and how to follow directions is all extremely important in the early learning process.

What it includes:

This free Thanksgiving printable is great for helping them work on letter creation and identification, as well as tracing skills, too. Once they start to master these activities, they can then move on to writing out their names and working on penmanship as well.



Fun ways to use this printable:

I love that learning printables can be so much than just about learning. Use these as a launching pad for springing into new ideas and thoughts.

Create a Thanksgiving scavenger hunt

Have the kids run around the house looking for Thanksgiving items or set up a fall hunt outside. They can gather specific items and bring them back to you or just write down where they’ve found them in the house.

Read Thanksgiving books

Gathering around the table and reading together is always a fun idea. There are so many ways that you can read even more books about Thanksgiving, just like this Pete the Cat: The First Thanksgiving book!

Have them work on writing out Thanksgiving words

Since they’re working on their handwriting skills, have them write out as many words that remind them of Thanksgiving that they can!

 What is the best way to teach handwriting? 

One of the best ways to teach handwriting is by having children practice it regularly. The more they write, the better their skills will become!

Why do we need good penmanship skills for school?

Good penmanship skills are essential for school because they help you better organize your thoughts and present them in an organized way.

They also allow the student to take notes more efficiently, which can enhance their learning experience overall!

Why are handwriting worksheets for preschoolers important? 

Handwriting worksheets are important for preschoolers to improve their skills in printing, writing, and copying.

When they practice these hand movements, it helps them become more confident with how the written word comes out on paper so that when confidence builds up, students will be able to use this skill throughout all academic subjects!

What is the biggest tip to remember when learning how to write?

The most important thing to remember when learning how to write well is that it’s about practice and not talent. You can always work on your own writing skills by doing activities like rereading what you have written or looking at other examples!

At what age do children learn how to write?

Some people think that children are born knowing how to write. yet research has shown this isn’t true as most begin learning the basics of formation and structure from an early age, usually between 3-4 years old.

The first formal school lessons on writing come when kids can already form shapes with their fingers or toes (around 5), but some may not be able to understand what these symbols mean until they’re taught differently by parents at home who show them various ways in which letters might look like before putting together words.

How do you improve a child’s handwriting?

Handwriting improvement is a lifelong process that should begin in kindergarten. One way to help your child improve his or her writing skills would be by providing them with lots of opportunities for practice and feedback from teachers, peers, parents, etc., so they can learn how important good penmanship really is before it becomes too late!

Does it matter how a pencil is held when writing?

It’s interesting to note that there are different ways in which people hold their pencils when they’re writing.

Some like it sharp, while others believe the best way is with an obtuse angle at about 15 degrees from vertical (which works well for me).

It doesn’t really matter what style you choose as long as your hands can comfortably reach all of the lines on paper without having any difficulty moving back and forth between them or cramping up after too many minutes spent seated at one spot!

When does a child learn cursive?

Although some children can learn cursive from an early age, many do not understand this skill until they reach school age.

The vast majority of American kids start learning their letters and numbers in “Cursive” by third grade so that when it comes time for high school or college applications, there will be no confusion about what was written down!
