I want to encourage my students to be thankful for the many things they do have. During the holiday season I talk to them about the variety of gifts that they receive. We talk about how gifts are not just something you unwrap, they could be the gift of time, friendship, etc. I give my students this chart to document the five thank you notes that they are going to do and turn in to me. They will receive extra credit for turning this in to me within a week after returning from the holidays.
** The preview is showing part of the document to give you an idea what it looks like. There is an explanation at the top (which will be helpful to the parents for them to understand what this task is all about). Parents and students will sign stating that they completed this task.
