Use these free Thanksgiving worksheets to make preschool math fun! I designed this set to keep my 4-year-old twins entertained while I work with their older brothers and they love to play the matching game at the table while I cook dinner!

Thanksgiving is often a busy time for moms: deep cleaning to prepare for company, baking, menu planning, and all this on top of your normal daily routine. Homeschooling during the holidays can be quite a stressful undertaking! We choose to have a lighter schedule from Halloween to after New Year's Day to reduce the stress and be able to really enjoy the holiday season. Normally my husband is home for Thanksgiving, but we recently learned he may not make it home until right before Christmas. Needless to say, I have four little boys that aren't very happy over this. Instead of our normal light schedule using our curriculum, I decided to switch things up & design our own Thanksgiving curriculum. Math is a huge thing at our house, with my 7-year-old begging for more worksheets & the twins about as interested in numbers as he is, so I started with some free Thanksgiving Math Printables for Preschoolers!
For the twins, I created a set of Thanksgiving Preschool math printables. The first one is a 2 page matching game. I printed off 2 copies of each page so they could play separately if they wanted and cut them out. Just like memory, we flip them upside down and they have to match them up. You can print this free matching game here.
Even though the twins have mastered counting 1-10, I got carried away while making worksheets (I never realized how fun it is!) and made two counting worksheets. The first one is counting 1-5 and the second is counting 5-9.
You may have noticed 10 isn't on either worksheet. We use Math-U-See for our math curriculum and it focuses on 0 to 9, because that is how place value works. I used the traditional 1-10 with my oldest, but found 0-9 really helped when it was time to start doing double digit addition and subtraction.
How do you teach math – 0 to 9 or 1 to 10? Leave a comment and let me know!
