a thankful list
This morning, instead of our usual paragraph, I had my students write a list of ten things they were thankful for. Here's a partial list of their responses.
Things We Are Thankful For...
* school * family * good food * being free * God * Mrs. Lawson * getting to see my Nana every week * my house * holidays * iPod * High Pointe * Thanksgiving * learning * my dog * paper * food * parents * love * food and water * presents * my Mom * not being a bully * cute clothes * veterans * art, recess, PE, and library * sharing * my mom getting a new job * my aunt's new dog * science experiments *rainy days * not to be dead * for my friends *my bedroom * soldiers in the Army *writing * a roof over my head * brothers and sisters * cousins * aunts and uncles * potato chips * tv & video games * books * hamsters * doctors * animals * sunsets * and best of all, "I am thankful for life."
