It’s the season of giving thanks at Story School.
This year we are celebrating a season of thankfulness with “Thank It Forward” certificates.
Not only are we letting our friends at school know that we are thankful for them, but we are also sharing certificates of thankfulness with family and friends in our community.
After choosing one or more people to share their thankfulness with, students are being asked to include a blank “Thankful For” certificate for the recipient to share their gratitude with someone else. The students are having a great time surprising their friends and family with these special cards of gratitude.
Research studies have found when people identify the good things in their lives, and share their appreciation with others, it has a positive effect in the lives of everyone involved. At Story School, we are hoping to reinforce the value of thankfulness in all of our lives.
