Students Showing Gratitude

Hey teaching friends!   I know most of us tend to think about the 12 Days of Christmas when December hits, but I was reflecting on being thankful in November, so I decided to throw a little Organized Classroom twist on the normal tradition.   

Introducing the 12 Days of Gratitude Jar!
November is a tough month for teachers. Usually you are coming off the craziness of Halloween and the sugar rush that follows. 
Next, it's election day and Veterans Day, which are both important to mention. 
Usually, parent teacher conferences are in that mix as well, which means a couple really late evenings that week too. 
Then, it seems as though you have a short week for Thanksgiving Break, but with only a couple days off, you are home and trying to clean, prep, and cook a big meal and host houseguests from out of town. Not to mention the laundry, grocery shopping, and more. 
And then it's suddenly December! 
November is one of those months where you NEED to remember the memories and words of love throughout the month because it can spiral out of control very quickly. Taking a few quiet minutes each school session in the days leading up to your holiday break really give both you and students a chance to pause and reflect on all the good things happening during this time of year as well.
