Teach your students all about being thankful…what it looks like, how it feels, what to be thankful for, and how to show others they are thankful. Make a Thankful Tree in your classroom, make a thankful turkey craft, and make thank you posters for first responders. Discuss and create a turkey anchor chart about what they are thankful for and how they can show others they are thankful. This unit is perfect to do anytime during the year or during the holiday (Thanksgiving).
Teaching social skills and how to interact with others (aka character education) is a life skill and takes direct teaching for little learners. It takes lots of practice and visual supports. These activities will help you build a caring community of learners who will support each other all year long. These activities are designed for preschool, pre-k, kindergarten, or first grade.
