Gratitude Projects 2014

The end of the year is a time to look back and think about what we are grateful for. In 5R we have discussed a lot about gratitude and showing appreciation not only for people and deeds, but also for the life we have around us.

The last week of school, the students had an open ended homework assignment to create a project showing their gratitude on a variety of topics, such as, "something you are grateful for that smells nice" or "something you are grateful for that has a vibrant color." The student projects were really thoughtful and well done. They also had to share their projects to work on their public speaking goals. We spent a lovely morning listening to the students as they spoke about their gratitude.

All in all, it was a wonderful project and just perfect for the last day of school before a long winter holiday. I think I will make it a holiday tradition!

Please enjoy looking at some of the projects and photos presented to the class this morning.
