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.
