Over the past week we have been talking about the word 'thankful'.  This began with reading the book The Way I Feel, By Janan Cain, as the book identifies different feelings individuals can have.  The children and I all felt thankful that we had special guests coming to read to us throughout the week.  At the end of each day, we created thank you cards to give to our readers. 

On Thursday we read a poem about being thankful and then thought of the things we are thankful for.  During our community circle, we passed around a turkey (named Gobbles) and each shared what we are thankful for in our lives.  
Here is what the children in the morning class had to say:
  • Abd-ElRahman is thankful for reading books.
  • Amélie is thankful for her friend Leia.
  • Augustus is thankful that he’s a bobcat today. 
  • Daniel is thankful for his car, CDs, and books.
  • Finn is thankful for his Hot Wheels car.
