It is important for us as teachers to teach our students how to be kind and grateful people, this time of the year is an excellent time to enforce these traits in our students and show them that they can be thankful for even the littlest things in life and that it feels good to be kind to others and give back to our communities.There are so many activities and resources available to use to help teach our students how to express what they are thankful for.They will will do so much more than just write out fun stories.
Thanksgiving provides such a wonderful (and much-needed) opportunity to practice gratitude.
We often spend our days thinking about what we don’t have or what we’d like to have, and it’s nice to take the chance to really focus on what is already in our lives.
By giving out writing exercises my students put thought and consideration into what it is they are thankful for and this really helps to get the creative juices flowing.
With this in mind I created a Thanksgiving themed writing pack that we can use in the run up to Thanksgiving.
The weather has completely thrown off my internal seasonal clock this year – summer seemed to last forever, but yet I can’t believe that it is already November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner!
