Feeling Thankful

Hello all!

In November, we focused on the theme of being thankful with our 3rd graders. We read "The Thankful Book" by Todd Parr and discussed what we are all thankful for in our own lives. The students made some incredibly thoughtful contributions to the discussion and many students shared the same things that they are thankful for. Some of these included: friends, family, pets, education, health, a free country, their homes, fresh food, and access to water. We discussed how many of the things we should be thankful for cannot be bought by money. Students worked on writing their lists on leaves which went onto a thankful tree on display in our main hallway. I am so proud of our students for thinking about ways in which we can be thankful during this season. Enjoy the picture below!
