A Tree of Gratitude

During the month of November, kindergarten students at Sylvan Avenue have focused on gratitude as part of their social-emotional wellness learning.

Prior to the Thanksgiving break, parents joined their children for a lesson geared toward gratitude to assist in furthering the students’ development of empathy and sensitivity towards others. They listened to Todd Parr’s “The Thankful Book,” and brainstormed what they were thankful for in their school and home lives. With the help of parents, they made a three-dimensional tree. Each leaf on the tree represented something for which the students were thankful. Most importantly, the students learned a valuable lesson as to why Thanksgiving should be celebrated each day.
