Gratitude is a powerful feeling that can improve our well-being and perspective on life. To help children express and cultivate this sentiment, we have created a set of “I Am Thankful For” Worksheets. These activities are not only perfect for Thanksgiving but can also be used throughout the year to remind us of our blessings.
Feathered Friends Worksheet: Thankfulness with a Creative Twist
The first worksheet features a peacock with blank feathers, ready to be filled with words of thankfulness. Each feather represents an opportunity for children to articulate something they’re grateful for. This not only helps them recognize the good things in their lives but also lets them engage in artistic expression as they decorate their peacock’s feathers.
Alphabet Gratitude Worksheet: A to Z Thanks
The second worksheet presents a unique twist on gratitude by linking it to the alphabet. Each line starts with a different letter, encouraging kids to think of something they are grateful for that starts with that letter. This is a wonderful exercise that stretches the imagination and vocabulary, as children think beyond the usual items of gratitude to find something corresponding to each letter of the alphabet.
Incorporate these “I Am Thankful For” Worksheets into your lesson plans or family activities to create a culture of gratitude in your environment. They serve as a gentle reminder that there is always something to be thankful for, from the grand to the seemingly insignificant. Let’s spread gratitude one letter at a time!
