PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For thanksgiving or any time of the year that students could use some time to stop and reflect on the good things in life!

The Gratitude Tree is a story that teaches students that the secret to happiness is being grateful for what you have. It includes instructions and resources to make a gratitude tree with your students as well as write about gratitude.

After sharing the story with your students, you can create a "gratitude tree" where you students can write what they are grateful for on a colorful leaf and add it to the tree. There are 3 different styles of leaf activities depending on the number of students (size of the leaf) and how much writing you want them to do. So you could do this with the whole school like I did, or just your class or grade level. Students can list what they are grateful for, or they could do a little more writing.

This 22-page story (in the form of a PDF presentation) is written and illustrated by Stacey Peters, the creator of Expressive Monkey. When you show the presentation, be sure to use "Full-Screen Mode" so that the transitions are in effect. I've also included a "PRINT" version that you can print out and use (it is formatted slightly different).

I've also included a template for writing a letter to a person that you are grateful for and also a story writing page.
