Thanksgiving Writing Activity
During the month of November, it’s the perfect time to discuss being thankful with kids. Whether you’re doing it at home or in a classroom, kids can really benefit from activities about being grateful. It’s a great way to reflect and really focus on what matters the most to them.
That’s why I love this writing activity. Kids can use this I Am Thankful Worksheet to write out things they’re thankful for. The fun part is they have to find something for each letter of the alphabet. It makes them really think, focus and hone in on what’s important to them. When they’re done, they’ll have down 26 things! Some letters will be tougher than others but I’m sure kids can fill in the entire page.

When it’s complete, hang it up somewhere the whole family will see it. If someone is having a hard day at home, take time to go over the I Am Thankful Worksheet together and talk it out.
