Fall is in full swing and that means cooler weather, leaves changing, and some of our favorite holidays! We are excited about all the fall-themed activities and the yummy treats that we enjoy this time of year. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, now is the perfect time to talk about some of our favorite things we are thankful for, like dessert… especially pie! This free Question of the Day for Pre-K, Transitional Kindergarten, & Kindergarten will have your students excited to share what their favorite Thanksgiving pie is!
Free Question of the Day for Pre-K & Kindergarten
This pie-themed question, “Which pie do you like the most?” is great for holidays like Thanksgiving when we are enjoying ALL the sweet treats we can (sometimes too much!).
There are 4 answers for students to choose from: blueberry, cherry, pumpkin, and apple. We also included a response sheet for kiddos that are ready for more writing.
There are also editable name tags for graphing or voting!
Ways to Use the Question of the Day
As teachers, we know that most students love to share their thoughts and stories. That’s why I like to use our Questions of the Day during our Morning Meeting or Circle Time. It’s great to take their enthusiasm and turn it into a super fun group activity!
You can use the editable name tags to customize this activity and add an extra level of excitement. The students love seeing their own names printed out!
After talking about all of the delicious varieties of pie, it’s time to take a class vote. When it is their turn to vote, the kids come up and place their name tags with the card that shows their favorite piece of pie.
You can choose to display the votes vertically or horizontally in the pocket chart. This is a great opportunity to model graphing two different ways!
Be sure to laminate the question and pie cards for use year after year!

Use the response sheet as an extension of the class vote and graphing activity OR a fun morning arrival task.
The response sheet includes a sentence prompt that says, “My favorite pie is ______ because ______.” for students that are ready to show off their early writing skills.
The pie names are printed on the response sheet for early learners that may need a little more support. When they are done they can draw and color a picture of their favorite pie!
With so many options for using this free Question of the Day, it’s perfect for any Pre-K, TK, or Kindergarten classroom!
BONUS Thanksgiving Song!
Songs are powerful AND super fun too! That’s why we want to share with you one of our favorite songs for November.
This is a simple song about a turkey and is sung to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot.” We love quick and easy songs that we can sing together at Circle Time!
Check out the video to hear our turkey song in action. You will definitely want to sing it with your students this Thanksgiving!
I’m a little turkey,
big and round.
Gobble, gobble is my sound!
When it’s almost
I shake my feathers
and run away!
