Looking for a few November activities to do with your preschooler? Stay tuned, because today I’m sharing ten of our favorite, fun, fine-motor, math, and literacy games.
Printable Preschool Activities for November
Our top ten November activities cover quite a few things off of our list of things your preschooler can learn at home. Things like letter recognition, counting, shapes, patterns, name writing, prewriting, and more.
Let’s get started!
1. Alphabet Leaves Game
This Alphabet Leaves Game teaches letter recognition. Using blocks, buttons, or cereal, have your kids cover up the correct letters. (There is one alphabet leaves game page for each letter of the alphabet.)
2. Counting Leaves with Tally Marks
This Counting Leaves with Tally Marks activity works on counting 1-10, number recognition, and counting with tally marks. Count the leaves then use Play Dough, Kinetic Sand, or Mad Matter to shape the numbers and the tally marks.
It’s important to note, that as you teach tally marks you should always instruct your kids to cross over on the fives. That way, you are laying a good foundation, rather than starting a habit you’ll have to correct later
3. Feather Counting
Give your kids a dry erase marker and a handful of fluffy, colorful feathers. Have them place the correct amount of feather on the turkey then trace the number word.
This activity teaches builds fine motor skills, counting 1-10, Number recognition, and number words.
4. Acorn emotions
Help your kids build their emotional awareness with these fun acorn emotion mats. (My kids loved these) Using Play Dough, Kinetic Sand, or Mad Matter, explore ten different emotions by shaping their expressions.
5. Around the Squirrel Shape Building
Using craft sticks, create the given shape around the squirrel, then take a dry erase marker and practice tracing the shape word. After that, observe the pattern at the bottom of the page that was made using that particular shape.
This activity works on preschool shape names, shape words, patterns, and fine motor skills.
6. Nutty Name Games
There are five different Nutty Name Games in this November Preschool printable. They focus on name writing practice, letter recognition (upper and lowercase), counting, and fine motor skills.
7. Scrabble Alphabet Words
Bring out some scrabble letters and a stack of these alphabet word mats (one for each letter of the alphabet), and have them practice building words.
This a wonderful activity to talk about alphabet letter sounds, beginning word sounds, and letter recognition.
8. Apples & Pumpkins to Pies
Get a dry erase marker and practice tracing the lines from the apples or pumpkins to their coordinating pies. This prewriting activity builds preschool pencil holding skills, stroke fluency, and focus.
9. November Mosaic Shapes for Collage
Work on spacial awareness by giving your kids objects (things from nature, beads, pom-poms, paper scraps, etc) and have them fill in the November-themed shape. Encourage them to fill the shape, but stay between the lines.
If you want to take this activity to the next level, and make it more of a fine motor activity, you could have your kids use a pair of child-friendly tweezers to maneuver the pieces around.
10. Pilgrim Patterns
Using small math link cubes, or colored wooden blocks, have your kids recreate the pilgrim pattern given. This preschool pattern activity is an awesome activity for teaching problem solving, spacial awareness, patterns, and fine-motor skills.
Low-Prep Preschool Activities for November
This is a LOW-Prep preschool activity pack! No laminating or endless hours of cutting. Simply print, slip into page protectors, and get started.
Note: I keep all the activities in a binder that my kids can pull out and work through. I also find it helpful to keep the blocks, feathers, dry erase marker and anything else we are using with this binder in a box along with the activities.
