{FREE} Thanksgiving "Which One is Different?" Cards!

It's getting close to Thanksgiving, and I am thrilled to share these {FREE} Thanksgiving-themed "Which One is Different?" cards!

These Thanksgiving cards are designed for the young preschooler, but could be used with any age that's working on this skill.

"Which one is different?" activities strengthen reasoning and observation skills that your children will use later when they begin to read graphs and interpret data.  They also help develop a one-to-one correspondence concept that will be important as children begin to read.

These Thanksgiving cards can be used in many ways!  I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating them so they last longer.  You can pull them out for one on one fun, set up a pile at a "center" table, or put them in a busy bag for outings.  Use clothespins to clip the different picture on each card, and you're strengthening small muscles too.  You can also use coins, buttons, pompoms, or any other small object to cover the different picture on each card!  Or punch holes in each picture and let your child tie a string to the one that is different!

I would love to know how you use the Thanksgiving "Which One is Different?" free preschool cards!

Happy Educating!
