Looking for a great stress-buster, bell-ringer, brain-break, warmer, filler, or fast-finisher activity?

This beautifully illustrated worksheet asks students to list the people in their life they are thankful. With some directed prompts, and some open ones, the students have to think about what that person adds to their life. This is a great way to find out what students really value in their friends and family, and it puts the emphasis on the reasons we are thankful, rather than the individuals themselves. This can work for the holiday season, Thanksgiving, or any time.

Students can also use their ideas to as a prompt for a longer writing, a discussion, or a drawing. Used as a filler or community builder, this activity will have students sharing important people in their lives in a unique way! This also makes a great writing center prompt!

As with all our positive filler activities, they can draw, discuss, write, or scaffold from drawing and labeling to writing.

This product contains suggestions on how to use the prompt and the one-page illustrated worksheet itself with a license to print, copy, and use it as many times in YOUR classroom as you like.


Each of these original worksheets from the 60 Positive Activities for Kids activities are extremely flexible and adaptable to fit your classroom! Students can respond in writing, in discussion, or by drawing. Younger learners (or lower-level ESL/EFL students) might start with a drawing, then label it. After that, they can tell their partner about their answer, before doing a short writing of a sentence or two. Older or more advanced students might start with drawings and notes, and move straight to a paragraph, which they can then read or present to the class!

These exercises make great stress-busters, bell-ringers, brain-breaks, warmers, fillers, or fast-finisher activities and they're easy to fit into a writing class, English class, creative play time, or even an after-school program, preschool, nursery school, kindergarten, or homeschooling situation.
