Find out what’s happening in Room 119


A THANKSGIVING TWIST is an activity that my students love every year.  Here is how it works:  Think of something that you might complain about.  Now twist it into something that you for which you are thankful.

For example:

I’m thankful for my alarm clock waking me up so early in the morning because that means I won’t be late for school!

I’m thankful for cleaning off the table after dinner because that means that I have delicious food to eat.
