A Glimpse Into Learning: Gratitude

Communications

In Casa 5 (Upper Elementary grades 4-5), students thought about what gratitude meant to them and how they should practice it year-round. They discussed that even the smallest acts can go a long way.

The class read We Are Grateful, listened to the author talk about her Cherokee culture, and thought more about gratitude. 

They wrote what they were grateful for on a strip and attached them, Möbius Strip style. Each day their gratitude is strip grows.

The students are also creating their own gratitude journals. View some of their thoughtful entries below.
