Gratitude Resources for Your Classroom

Colorful leaves, a chill in the air, and the aromas of spices and pumpkin signal that fall is here. In just a couple short days, family and friends will gather to celebrate Thanksgiving. Many will share a savory meal and good conversation, often voicing what and who they are thankful for. 

We here at Writable would also like to take this time to thank educators and administrators who work tirelessly with children across the nation. We thank you for making a difference in the lives of students, their parents and caregivers, and the communities in which you teach. Because of you, minds have been opened, opportunities have been gained, and potential has been realized. 

To show our continued gratitude for not only the educators using Writable in their classrooms but all educators we have created a set of “Gratitude Resources” to be used in your classroom:
