Student Instructions

We know that 2020 was a challenging year for almost everyone, and to many it was a hard year and one that they are happy to leave in the past. Your job is to think back over the year and share three positive things that you are thankful for. These are the times or lessons or people or activities that you want to remember and keep with you as we move into 2021. Did you meet new people? Find new ways to connect? Do things differently at home or school or both? Did you learn new skills, hobbies, sports, games, etc? Do you value certain people more, and cherish time with them? Did you learn more about yourself as a person? Have you developed better habits? Choose 3 things to add to this gratitude journal. Use the provided template to share your response. * Use label to add text responses telling what the three things are. * Use mic to share your thoughts and feeling about each of the three things. * Use photo to add photos or video of the people, places, things, that you mention - if you want to, or can do. * Use upload to add previously taken photos, or notes, or evidence from a computer, phone, or tablet - if you want to.

Personalize a sample for yourself or use mine if you wish. There are no students in my sample. Also I called it entry one as I'm planning to use gratitude journals on the first Monday of each month.
