Featured Lesson Plan: A Gift of Gratitude

This holiday season, make sure caring and gratitude trump consumerism and greed. It’s the perfect time to review the Pillar of Caring and talk about showing gratitude to friends and family. Not all gifts need to cost money, and often the most valuable ones are free.

Our featured lesson for December reviews the art of letter writing and has students create thoughtful letters of gratitude to show someone how much they are appreciated. Use the lesson as a pre-holiday activity that will result in a letter which students can give as a gift, or pair it as a companion piece to a lesson on writing business letters.

Either way, your students can experience the joy they bring loved ones when they take the time to write how much they appreciate them. Find the lesson here.
