Being thankful and showing gratitude

I will talking with our students about being thankful and showing gratitude this month. Here are some ways you could continue the lessons at home this month...


Ask every day one thing your student is thankful for today


Start a thankful jar- where each family member writes down something they are thankful about their family


Do random acts of kindness either for each other in the family or as a family for others


Talk about ways you express gratitude in your family and towards others


Make placemats or place holders to share with extended family about things for which you are thankful


Make a family gratitude journal and write down the things for which you are thankful


These are just a few ideas. Here some other fun ideas for sharing thankfulness and gratitude: http://ofthehearth.com/14-gratitude-activities-for-the-whole-family/ or

create your own and share with us at Baxter. Looking forward to hearing our students share what they are thankful for and how they spread their gratitude to others.
