We spent a lot of our day today talking about what we are Thankful for. We read some books. Thank You World by Alice B. McGinty and The Thank You Book by Todd Parr. We thought and thought about all of the many things in our lives that we have to be Thankful for. Here is a small snapshot:

Not just at this time of year, but all year long, we like to think about what we are thankful for. It is a difficult concept for 6 and 7 year olds to understand fully. It is at times, difficult for adults to understand or communicate. It can be simple or it can be more complex.
