As we approach Thanksgiving, our students took time to reflect on the many things that they are thankful for. A buddy pairing from each grade level (K/3, 1/4, 2/5) shared with one another, and worked together to compose their thoughts, which we have included below!
I’m thankful for my friends because they make learning more fun and enjoyable. I’m also thankful for my mom and dad because they take care of me and do so many things like buy food for our family, send me to school at Meridian, and let me participate in after-school activities.
I’m thankful for math because it’s fun! I can find reasons to use math every day. I know that not everybody gets to learn about math, so I’m really grateful. I’m also thankful for my brother. He’s entertaining and I can play with him or go to him when I feel like I need someone to talk to.
I’m thankful for all of the people who keep me safe at school and home. People aren’t as safe in other places, and sometimes that is scary. It’s really great to have teachers that care about us and keep us safe! I’m also thankful for specialist classes because it’s nice to be diverse and get a variety of teachers and environments. I’m also thankful for all the love and kindness my friends and family give to me. Because it’s something everyone needs and you should appreciate it, even when you disagree with your parents, because you always love them deep down.
I am thankful for the fun math we do, and for my teacher. She is nice and helpful. She makes class fun! I am also thankful for my dogs. I like to play with them because they’re cute and make me happy.
