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."

What are you thankful for today?


The art above is a sign I made for my classroom.  It is a Quentin Blake illustration with a Dr. Suess quote.

Most days I begin a prayer of thanks for being alive. Health troubles still persist, which is why I'm not around blogland as much these days, though I try to post at my own place when I can. It's good to see you here. :o) Wishing you & yours a Blessed Thanksgiving next week and Joy in the holidays ahead. ((HUGS))

Always love your students lists. Oh yes, Mrs. Lawson is a good thing to be thankful for.

Someone told me recently that there is a study that says if you think of 3 things you are grateful for everyday for 21 days, the brain actually shifts to begin seeing the positive more than the negative! I like it!
