Grateful for Many Things

Last week in the days leading up to Thanksgiving, I encouraged my class to think about those things for which they are grateful and write them down. Here are a few of my favourites:

I am grateful for my family because my family is nice. (grade 1)
I am grateful for my family because my mom and my dad help me when I need help. (grade 1)
I am grateful for living in Canada because there is peace here. (grade 2)
I am grateful for my brother and my father because they look after me. (grade 2)
I am grateful for my family because they adore me and I adore them. (grade 2)

The class discussion and the written responses showed me that we are never too young to be grateful for what we have in our lives.

What have you been grateful for this week?

  1. Oh Give Thanks to The Lord for He is Good.
    Yes, it is a very good thing you are doing by teaching little children “To Be Grateful”. Most of our Kids today, take us “for Granted”.
    I am Grateful for being Alive Today, with a Wonderful Family, A Good Job and for Being a Christian.
