Product Description
This jar is a great way to create a positive classroom community and give thanks. Everything but the jar is included in this bundle. You will find a label, a patterned grid to decorate the jar and a blackline master of "Today's Blessing" forms to use. This is an excellent way to celebrate additional holidays as well. Students will read the blessings as a way to say "thank you" to one another and to those who have enriched their lives in some way.
Allow students to showcase their talents and learn more about each other with the following units:
