Third graders create gratitude journals

Third graders in teacher Kim Walden and Yael Newman’s classes began the process of creating their gratitude journals by thinking of 20 things they were grateful for. Walden and Newman then incorporated the list into a journal format by introducing basic paragraph structures and a longer elaborated paragraph. “Students smiled, laughed, and felt proud and lucky as they reflected about the good things in their life,” Newman said.
