Who are you thankful for?

Next week you will be off of school for Thanksgiving. As we think about all the loving friends and family in our lives, think about someone you are thankful for. Maybe it is your mom or dad, maybe a good friend, maybe a teacher or coach, maybe a sister or brother...

Please select one person. Once you have narrowed it down, use the questions below to write a paragraph about who you are thankful for...

1. Who are you thankful for this year?
2. Why are you thankful for this person? What has this person done to help or support you?
3. What can you do to show this person that you are thankful for them?
