10 Ways Students Can Show Thankfulness in the Classroom

With Thanksgiving coming up next week, I thought now would be a great time to share some ways students can express and practice gratitude and thankfulness in the classroom. I think all teachers know that we don't only teach subjects but social skills as well and thankfulness is key. Here are ten ideas to get started!

1. Write a letter to someone that they are thankful for.

2. Draw a picture of something they are thankful for.

3. Have a classroom food drive or other community service project.

4. Create a graphic organizer brainstorming things they are thankful for.

5. Create a thankful chain by having students write their thanks of strips of paper before connecting them.

6. Research a quote about thankfulness and explain how they understand it.

7. Create a classroom graph of what students in the class are thankful for.

8. Create a top 10 list of things to be thankful for.

9. Read a book about thankfulness.

10. Keep a classroom gratitude journal.
