I’m Katie from Gift of Curiosity, and I’m thrilled to be back at Crystal & Co. to share my Thanksgiving-themed do-a-dot printables. One of the things I love best about blogging is the opportunity to create fun, educational printables for kids that I can share with parents and caregivers. I have a special passion for created themed printables for holidays and other educational units in our homeschool preschool. In anticipation of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, I have been busy creating Thanksgiving printables, including a set of Thanksgiving-themed do-a-dot printables that are currently available exclusively through Crystal & Co.
Do-a-dot worksheets provide young children with opportunities to practice an early math skill called one-to-one correspondence. One-to-one correspondence is the ability to match one object to one (corresponding) number or object. Although my kids have largely mastered one-to-one correspondence by now, they still get excited when I produce new do-a-dot worksheets for them.
The complete collection of Thanksgiving do-a-dot printables includes the following 10 images:

Kids can complete do-a-dot worksheets using a variety of different materials.
For example, you may want to have your children use small stickers. This will give their fine motor skills a great workout!
Children can also use Do-a-Dot markers to complete the worksheets. Do-a-dot markers are always popular in our home!
We recently acquired some fall-themed stamps. These are also an excellent choice for kids to use with the Thanksgiving do-a-dot worksheets.
And of course, you can always provide your children some small objects they can use to fill in each of the circles. For the pumpkin worksheet shown, I included one small foam pumpkin for each of the dots on the worksheet.
If you enjoy these printables, I invite you to check out the other printables I’ve created – including a Thanksgiving Printable Pack – by visiting my printables page.
