Looking for a great stress-busters, bell-ringers, brain-breaks, warmers, fillers, or fast-finisher activity?

This beautifully illustrated writing or conversation prompt asks students to think about someone who helped them and write a thank you note! Will they write it to someone who did something nice recently? Or to someone who has been with them for their whole life? What kinds of things make us feel gratitude? How does it feel to write a formal letter, instead of saying thanks or just texting?

A wonderfully flexible activity that also builds positivity in the classroom and promotes Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) as students talk about gratitude and how to express it. Or bring it out around Thanksgiving and make it part of your holiday activities.

You can also segue into the conventions of letter-writing. Maybe you'll have students actually send their letters and then discuss how the recipient felt!


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!

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.
