During Thanksgiving I focus on the meanings of “thankful” and “ gratitude.” We might read a book about the first thanksgiving but honestly it’s too much for littles to understand. They don’t understand the concept yet of yesterday – there’s no way to get them to understand history right now.
We started a little project that focuses on being “thankful.”
We talked about what it means to be thankful. What are you glad you have?
The end product will be a little something you can use in your own home to talk about “ gratitude”
