Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American listeners.
What is it to be thankful or to show gratitude?
Do you teach gratitude and thankfulness in your homeschool?
In this episode we explore what it means to be grateful. We also touch on different things that we do in each of our homeschool’s to teach our own kids to be thankful every day.
From creating a gratitude tree, or filling a gratitude journal, to writing thank you letters to friends and family promoting a world that is kind is important to us and we want to help inspire you to create that climate of kindness in your own home too.
