On Thanksgiving Day, with our help, the children in our class put together the Thank You Tree that was two weeks in the making. Every child wrote an essay about the person they wanted to thank the week before and then summarized it on a small leaf that they designed on Thanksgiving Day. Some leaves were orange; some were red; and some in the colors of the rainbow.
However different each leaf might be, they were all full of the thanks the children wanted to send.
I am thankful for my sister, because she always teaches me at night, she tells me what is right. And I am so thankful for her.
On Thanksgiving Day, I want thank my mom, because she helped me to come to the world and she helps me to grow. I want to say: “Thank you.”
And I want her to help her to clean the floor, and cook the food.
Dear Ms. Sun,
Thank you for your big love. Thank you for telling us how to be good people. Ms. Sun I really wish you can be my mum!
I am thankful for Ethan, because he is always my friend and plays with me.
On Thanksgiving Day, the children in our class also gathered in a circle to thank and receive thanks from their fellow classmates. They sent appreciations and felt appreciated for the small yet significant things that they did for their peers. By the end of the activity, our class became a closer family than we ever were.
On Thanksgiving Day, we felt the joy of giving thanks and learned the happiness from being appreciated.
