Today we had a great day! This was fabulous because yesterday was crazy. The kids had a great Halloween party, but I was so tired at the end of the day. Today my students worked really hard. We had some great discussions, and they worked independently when they needed to without causing too much disruption for others. I had someone tell me one time that teaching gifted students is easier because they are more motivated. This is not necessarily true. Gifted kids can be so creative and absolutely amaze you when they apply themselves. However, they also can be very emotional and sensitive. Often, they also are used to things being so easy for them, that once something is challenging they fight it with everything they have.
Anyway, I am just happy that it was a good day! In fact, I am thankful. This month I plan on doing a gratitude journal with my students. How do you bring up the subject of gratitude in your classroom? This weekend I am going to work on my gratitude journal and maybe some other ideas for gratitude in the classroom to share. I would love to have guest bloggers do some posts related to gratitude in their own lives or classrooms. Let me know if you are interested.
I hope you stop by the amazing giveaway going on at Miss V's Busy Bees. I am thankful for her enthusiasm and great ideas.
There are five giveaways with absolutely tons and tons of prizes from lots of bloggers. One prize is $15 credit to my TpT store.
