Welcome to Little Hive!
Mrs. Sewell/Mrs. McKnatt
Over the past few weeks, we have been discussing what it means to be thankful in our classroom. As Thanksgiving approaches, we have begun to identify feelings of gratitude and what we are thankful for. The girls identified that they are thankful for things that "make them feel happy". An early emphasis on developing gratitude is important when looking at development of the whole child. Discussing and instilling a sense of gratitude in young children can help them to develop important empathy skills that will serve them as they continue to grow. In discussing an "attitude of gratitude" the girls have been discussing all of the things that they are thankful for. Take a look at some of the things that our Little Hive girls are thankful for:
"My Mommy, my Daddy, my house, and milk" - Anika
"Fruit and marshmallows" - Natalie
"Mommy, Daddy, ice cream shop" - Aubree
"Momma and Dad" - McBride
"My animals" - Margaret Rose
"My Mommy and Daddy" - Lucy
"The lions" - Elizabeth
"Milk, my dog names Lincoln, my Mommy and Daddy, and my House" - Lou
"Riding a horse" - Carina
"My doggies" - Elle
It is so sweet hearing all of the things that the girls are thankful for, and we wanted to share this sweet video of them telling us what they are thankful for.
We are so thankful for all of the girls in our class, and so grateful to you all for sharing them with us each and every day! We hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, and gratitude filled Thanksgiving!
