Quick Write: Who is someone you are thankful for and why?

Text a person you are thankful for and let them know you are thankful for them! Things you could say:

“Thank you for:

  • helping me
  • listening to me
  • being there for me
  • putting up with me when I’m difficult
  • for accepting me for who I am
  • taking care of me”

or “Hello, today at school, I have to text one person I am thankful for. I picked you. Thank you!”
