We teach kids to speak real Spanish. For Life

Give the Gift of Thankfulness!

¡Feliz Día de Acción de Gracias!

Thanksgiving is a very American holiday, but taking time to reflect and be thankful is a quality found in every culture. Several weeks ago, a local ice-cream shop donated ice-cream to the school where I teach. The owners are Hispanic, so my students had to place their orders in Spanish. This was a great opportunity for them to see that they could use their Spanish outside of the classroom, plus they got free ice-cream. That’s something to be thankful for!

So this week we’re going to make thank-you cards to give back to the ice-cream shop. There are tons of things to be thankful for. You can brainstorm with your students to see what they are thankful for, and then help them write a thank-you card to give to someone special on Thanksgiving. For more advanced language students, you can always include a formal greeting and salutation too.

The long weekend is almost here, and I’m truly thankful for that. Enjoy!
