"It is not happy people who are thankful. It is thankful people who are happy."-Unknown
This week is a great time to give pause and to help develop a culture of gratitude in your classroom. For some students, when they are off for Thanksgiving break, it may be a stressful time because of a wide variety of circumstances. While we can't control what happens with students outside of school, we can help them in school by providing them with tools for coping with stressful situations. Here is an interesting article on ways to build gratitude into your class.
I'll start off by sharing how grateful I am to work in such an amazing, close-knit, community of educators. I truly can say that when I get up every day, it is a joy to go to work and share in this journey with all of you. Thank you for your passion, dedication, professionalism, and endless focus on what is best for our students.
Incorporate one activity into your classrooms that help to build a culture of gratitude.
