The Frenzied SLPs have a special treat for you this month— a scavenger hunt style blog hop where we will share our thankful and grateful stories while inviting you to participate in our giveaway. Three lucky winners will be chosen to each receive a $10 Teachers Pay Teachers gift card and a $10 Starbucks gift card. I think that is something to definitely feel thankful and grateful for!!
I am thankful and grateful for so many things, however when I reflected on what I am most thankful for, I realized that the simple things in life were at the top of my list! I decided to create an acrostic poem to sum up my reasons to be thankful and grateful. Not only was it a fun and meaningful exercise for me, but I think it will make a great lesson for my students. I plan on sharing my acrostic with them as inspiration for their own ideas. I work with middle and high school students, but this could be used with younger children as well.
Want to make your own “I am thankful”acrostic poem with your students? Click on the link for the brainstorming page and template that I created. It’s my small gesture of thanks to you this holiday season. I hope you find it useful in helping your students become aware of all the things—especially the simple things in life—that there are to be thankful and grateful for!
I am also so thankful to those of you who visit my blog and take the time to read my about my thoughts and ideas.
