Attitude of Gratitude Lessons

Thanksgiving at the Tappleton's is an adorable holiday read aloud with a great message of finding gratitude in all situations. The Tappleton's traditional Thanksgiving meal goes all awry when Mrs. Tappleton lets the frozen turkey accidentally slide down the icy sidewalk into the pond. The meal plans go from bad to worse shape from there on in! It's a very cute read.

This book is a perfect lead in to my Gratitude Journal prompts I use in November.
This set has 18 prompts focused on thanks and gratitude.

I also love having each student complete a "Grateful Poster" with thoughts and images of gratitude.

That's a sneak peek into my planbook for the week!
