By teaching young children to be thankful, we can help them to develop a habit of gratitude and learn to be thoughtful of others--at Thanksgiving time, or any time of year.
When most kids think about thanking someone, their first inclination is to focus on tangible gifts such as toys. However, we can broaden their concept of gratitude to include letting people know that we appreciate the intangible things they do for us every day. These people might be:
• family members, relatives;
• teachers, principal, cafeteria and office workers, bus drivers, librarians;
• doctors, dentists, police officers, fire fighters, trash collectors.
Two "Thank You" pages are directed at a specific person or group of people. I use these pages with kindergartners or 1st graders.
Two "I am thankful" pages are suitable for older children, who can deal with the more abstract concept of thankfulness.
I have included both Thanksgiving (turkey) and generic (happy face)
versions of the worksheets, so that you can use the resource any time of year:
• at holiday time, to say thank you for gifts;
• at the end of the year, to thank teachers or members of school staff;
• any time of the year, to thank community members or friends.
