We want our students and our children to develop attitudes of gratefulness, to say “thank you” without being prompted, and to appreciate any worldly goods and advantages they have.

Use these four Thanksgiving prompts to get them thinking about their blessings and how they can bless others.

Help your students and children find that attitude of gratefulness with this bundle of Thanksgiving writing prompts. For students in 5th-12th grade.
