This introduction page gets children familiar with the holiday.
Prepare for reading the rebus story by reviewing the vocabulary words. This way children can read along with you.
Get started by reading this rebus story about John's Thanksgiving Traditions.
Begin by identifying the images and words using the word bank This helps children to successfully assist in reading the story aloud.
Encourage children to follow along the story with their finger as you read, pause when you come to an image and invite your preschooler to fill in the word.
The included printable story props are excellent for a variety of activities including retelling the story and creating other stories.
After reading the story, preschoolers can complete the sequencing activity.
