A Time to Give Thanks


November 23 is the day we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. Thanksgiving is a celebration where families and friends come together to share in a special meal. Thanksgiving is all about gratitude. Gratitude is the act of giving thanks,  expressing appreciation, and returning kindness. All communities and cultures have celebrations where they express gratitude. Sharing gratitude is also one of the tools in our tool belt we use for creating positive emotion or happiness. We try to share gratitude throughout the school day.

Let’s create happiness for ourselves and others by sharing gratitude today!

What are you grateful for? Leave us a note on our Padlet below. Click on the + sign to add your thoughts. You can make the sticky note “stick” by clicking outside of the box.

    Dear Mrs. Amri,
    Thanks for showing us how to feed the hungry. And thank you for letting write on the on line sticky notes and for showing us how to do more activities to feed the hungry.

      Dear Blake,
      Thanks for your comment. Isn’t Freerice a wonderful way to make a difference in the lives of others? I really enjoy learning new things this way as well. Learning by making mistakes and feeding the hungry at the same time. Brilliant. Maybe we can do this with another class, Ms. Hainley’s class perhaps?
      Fondly, Jody
