"G" Journals

Hi Friends,
It's hard to believe it is NOVEMBER already!  This is the time of year when many of us teach our students about the First Thanksgiving.  We usually include some kind of writing activity in which we ask our kids to share what they are thankful for in their lives.  Last year I wrote a post about grateful journals or "G" journals.  I thought this might be a good time of the year to share it with you again.  The original idea for "G" journals came from my friend Tammy over at Forever in First.  You can read her post about them {here}. 

I give each of my students a small "G" journal the first week of November.  I ask them to write and draw one thing they are grateful for each day.  I have them do this every day until Thanksgiving break and then they take their "G" journals home and share them with their family.  Here are some pictures:)

Here are some books I read to the class before we begin writing in our "G" journals.  As a class, we also make a list of things we are grateful for that I post on large chart paper and hang up. 

What are you grateful for this year?
I am grateful that you are reading my blog!
