Learners write notes of gratitude to a loved one or to themselves to show their appreciations and pride. We first brainstorm together to whom we could write and what sorts of things the person might like to read, or what would feel good to read yourself in a week, a month, or a year from now. Then we spend some time writing together, with the teacher available to support sounding out words and phrasing ideas in creative ways. Finally, we use reused materials and glue or Mod Podge to decorate...
Students will use original, specific, "juicy" adjectives and verbs to communicate their feelings in a clear way. They will share their ideas with others and end class with a heart full of warm fuzzies!
