Giving Thanks!

During this time of year, we are start to think about those that we cherish and feel thankful to have in our lives. This is a Give Thanks wreath that I made for my 3rd graders’ classroom.

Each child had the opportunity to write down who, or what they were thankful for most this year. The best part was that it was competed in time for Grandparents day too!
