Just before Thanksgiving break I had the opportunity to speak with Mrs. Carr's second grade class at Trego Grade School. I shared my story "The Secret of Saying Thanks" and then spent time talking with the class and having a q&a time. I must retract my earlier decision that the right age for asking questions does not happen until about 5th grade. http://mwks13.blogspot.com/2013/05/the-right-age-for-questions.html
This class did an amazing job of listening and really staying focused on my presentation. They did an excellent job stating what they are thankful for and even wrote in my gratitude journal. I was thrilled to hear them thanking each other, teachers, classroom grandmas, etc. naturally as they went through their day. If we all were as thankful as I witnessed these second graders being, this world would be a very different place.
Thankful thought for today:
