Thanksgiving: My Students Reflect on Troops

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

I am having a great time with my 7th grade English Language Arts classes today, as it is the last day before we take a little break for Thanksgiving. I am looking forward to having the rest of the week off, as are they.

Whenever we have holidays or observances, I like to show brief video clips. I did it for 9/11 and Veteran's Day already this school year. I always want them to know what is transpiring in the world. I also want to create within them a deep respect for America and for those who defend America.

I found a Thanksgiving video that pays tribute to our troops, and my students are seeing that today. It's short, it's to the point, but it plants seeds of thankfulness within their hearts--and within mine.

Enjoy...and be thankful.

Thank you for posting. As a veteran I have a special appreciation for all of the active duty volunteers and their families. We truly have much to be thankful for.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to all of our military members at home and abroad.
