Teaching your students the lost art and courtesy of writing thank you notes the week before Thanksgiving is the perfect activity to keep your students engaged during those few days before Fall Break!

Included in this product is an informational article that discusses how and why we should continue to write thank you cards. The article also discusses the health benefits of incorporating a daily gratitude practice into our lives--there are a lot!

Examples of thank you notes are included to model for your students what is expected. Also included are premade templates for thank you cards that you can print for your students to write their own thank you cards. A Grading Rubric is included! Bonus points if they actually deliver them! :)

Students could possibly write notes to local healthcare workers or other frontline essential workers (including teachers!) to thank them for their service during these difficult times!
