Activities to help you develop a heart of gratitude in your family or classroom.
Weekly activities to help build an attitude of thanksgiving. The Workbook centers around memorizing Psalm 100 using a storyboard and actions. Weekly crafts, songs, and activities support the learning. Beginning in Week 3, a Thanksgiving Tree is created to develop an ongoing list of praises.

Print the Attitude of Gratitude poster (one for each child or person in the family). Hold a family meeting and discuss with the children what it means to have an attitude of gratitude. Give each child an "Attitude of Gratitude" poster and have the child write his name on the dotted line on the poster.
Explain that every time he expresses something that shows a grateful heart and spirit he will be allowed to place a sticker on the chart. At the end of the month, reward each child with something special to show how important it is to you that he is learning to have a grateful heart.
Prepare a " Baskets of Thanks" containing goodies for people whom you are thankful. Include a note of thanks.
