Giving Thanks with Girls LitClub in Baltimore

This week my club discussed things we love and feel thankful for. We read Eloise Greenfield's poem, Honey, I Love and discussed what she loved: her mom, her cousin, her friend and playing dolls. Then we considered what we love, and being the day before Thanksgiving, what we feel thankful for. One of the girls mentioned how she enjoyed making turkeys by tracing the outline of her hand on paper.

We did that and then wrote one of our items in each of the turkey's "feathers." At least one girl was so appreciative she filled the entire shape! We made a collective list and found that we are thankful for many of the same things: our families, friends, homes, school and even our club! Here's hoping you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that we all remember to be appreciative every day.
