Last week Amanda shared a cute tree that she attached to her wall and then had her girls decorate with leaves that said why they were thankful. I liked this project so much that I was inspired to do something similar at school with my 7th grade students.
I made a tag board tree trunk many moons ago while student teaching and knew that it would be perfect to use for this project. After wasting more time than I care to admit digging through my teaching stash, I realized that the trunk was no where to be found. I headed to the office to get some brown paper to use to make a new tree trunk, but of course, there was no brown paper. So, I ended up not making a tree trunk after all, and just stapled leaves to the bulletin board that include thankful thoughts.
Like my 7th graders, I’m also thankful for a great life. I’m blessed with a wonderful family, a husband who is my best friend and who knows how to have fun, great friends, a nice home, and a good job. I’m also thankful for blogging because it’s allowed me to connect with so many great people. Have you been thinking about for what your are thankful?
