April POWerful Word – GENEROSITY – Week 4

What does saying “thank- you” have to do with generosity (i.e. thank people for their generosity, generous with our own gratitude)? Who has been very generous to you lately– at home or here in class? How can you thank them for being so generous? Who are some of the top people in your life who teach you generosity each day? To celebrate those who teach us fill in the blank; “I want to thank my teacher for…_____.” (i.e. helping me with math, teaching me confidence, making learning fun)? When you need help or don’t understand how to do a new skill/new piece of knowledge, how can a teacher help and show generosity with his or her time, talents or treasures? What would happen to our love of learning and our ability to understand, if our teachers did not show generosity while we learned? So let’s take some time to thank our teachers!

If you have time: At this point, invite the teachers into class and follow the teacher appreciation procedure.
