Let's get our students really thinking about how thankful we are for our bodies and all the amazing things it does for us. This could be used in a PE setting, classroom, school-wide, health, nurses office, and after school program.
In this download you will find 10 turkeys with speech bubbles, promoting thankfulness for our bodies. Just print, laminate and hang them today! It's a great conversation starter for students, parents and teachers to why are so thankful for our wonderful bodies.
When talking to the kids about the this bulletin board (which I usually do when waiting in line for their teachers to pick them up), we discuss all the amazing things our bodies do for us. I love stressing the fact that many people cannot move like the kids can (i.e. health reasons, disabilities, age, etc.) and by exercising you can really improve how your body functions.
When asking the students something they are thankful for, they must state why. Just like the ten examples I gave in the visuals.
Included you will also find little cards of turkeys with speech bubbles you could hang with the bulletin board. I only pick a few kids per class and only have them write one word on card (they are in K & 1st grades) but this could be used however to meet your needs. There are larger turkeys included and blank speech bubbles to create your own.
