This month we continue the conversation about GRATITUDE!
What are some fun activities that help remind us of the importance of gratitude?
- Gratitude Photos – write down what you are thankful for on a large piece of paper and then have someone take a picture of you holding the sign. Then you can post it to our SKS fan page or family group.
- Gratitude Vision Board – children can cut out picture of things that they are gratful for and then use the picture to create their own collage using poster board. Parents can shoot a quick video of the kids holding the board and talking about some of the things they are grateful for. Any student that posts their picture to our Facebook fan page will receive a leadership stripe for their belt.
- Bring a Buddy to Class – Each student is welcome to invite a special person to class. It can be a friend, a sibling, a relative, etc. At the end of class, give the students an opportunity to tell the class why they are grateful for the person they decided to bring to class that day.
