This FREE thank you note writing activity will provide your students with an awesome opportunity to give back to the school community! It can be used during the holiday season, Teacher Appreciation Week, or anytime you want to spread warmth and kindness.

Many people at your school positively impact your students' lives by working hard to make your school a better place. This is a chance to acknowledge and celebrate them!

Students will reflect on all of the people who have had a positive impact on their school year. They will learn an important life skill about the elements that make up a well-written thank you note. Students will then write a detailed note of thanks to a special school community member.

You will be so proud of your kids when you see JOY in the eyes of every letter recipient! And the recipients won't be the only people who benefit. Your students will also benefit! Gratitude is associated with greater happiness because expressing it helps one focus on good experiences and positive connections with others. So EVERYONE will benefit!

(Warning: This product will leave your colleagues feeling warm and fuzzy. Has been known to cause grown teachers, custodians, principals, bus drivers, and cafeteria aides to cry ;-)
