Outside the entrance to the library there is a giant bulletin board, which is the perfect backdrop to feature student work. This year I wanted to do a school-wide thankful project. First I put up the brown turkey, but without the feathers. That got the kids really interested and they kept telling me I forgot to put the feathers on! As the classes cycled in over the past 2 weeks, the children helped create the feathers. The students traced their hands and wrote, drew and decorated what they are thankful for on their paper cut outs.
I really love that the whole school was involved in making this bulletin board. And its really interesting to see what the kids are thankful for- most of them are thankful for their mom and dad, which is really sweet to see.
What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving season?
