Gratitude Part Deux

I have written before about how much I love using Gratitude Journals with the kiddos this year. I was inspired (as usual) by Terri over at: . She posted a bunch of links for ideas using critical thinking and I found this gem: .

I had been just asking them to write what they were grateful for that happened over the weekend or in November. But I think these are great ways to ask them to think more specifically (one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments!). So today I asked my Little Dragons to write about something they were thankful for that didn't cost any money. This is what they came up with:

Gotta love his priorities! :)

I bet most teachers you ask would say the same! :)

Since we are Title 1 we have some kind of grant that gives them snacks to take home.

Awwwww! :)

Well, I guess it didn't cost him any money! :)

Aren't we all! :)

Learning, reading and freedom is free too.



  1. These are great! I would totally frame the teacher one!

  2. I know right-I even love that I am holding her hand in the illustration-so cute!

  3. I really enjoy their grateful thoughts. :)
