Our Character Education value for November is “gratitude” and that means letting other people know that you see how they have helped you. When someone does something kind or helpful for us, we are able to show our gratitude by saying “thank you” or some other words to show our appreciation. We might want to write a thank you to let someone know we are grateful for what they have said or done to help us. You may want to talk with your family about other ways to show gratitude. Perhaps each day we might be able to show gratitude toward someone at home and at school. Some books about gratitude that you might want to read are The Black Pearl by Scott O’Dell, Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Steig, and Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? By Dr. Seuss. Have a wonderful month showing gratitude!
