How You Can Inspire Thankfulness in Your Kids Part 2

Recently, I wrote a post about thankfulness and how to inspire it in your students.  You can see this post here.  I called this their “Thankfulness Project”.   Students were to write down three things they were thankful for each day.  After that they were to write down one act of kindness they did each day.  After about a month, I took up their journals and read what they had written.  This was not for a grade, but I rewarded the students who had done most or all of the work.  The parents were aware of the project as well.  One of the journals that I read really touched my  heart.  It is pictured below.  Make sure to read the very bottom sentence.


I pulled this child aside after I read her journal and asked her what she meant when she wrote, “This totally made me rethink my whole life”.  She explained, “Because I didn’t realize I had so much to be thankful for.”  WOW!  This  speaks volumes.
