Tuesday, just two days before Thanksgiving, we had a wonderful afternoon reading through our “thankful slips” that we had written for each other. This was an activity we started at the beginning of November. We decorated our cups to look like turkeys, and each day throughout the month, we took a few minutes to choose two slips and write about why we were thankful for those two students. By the end of the month, everyone in the class had a chance to think and write about why they were thankful for each of their classmates. It was quite the uplifting afternoon once we finally had the chance to read them. Lots of smiles and hugs were shared that afternoon. Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and I pray we can remember all those things we were thankful for in each of our classmates as the year continues.
