Grateful Fourth Graders

This week, in our Yesodei Halashon program, we worked on gratitude. We wrote thank-you cards to people whom we appreciate, such as parents, teachers, and friends, we read stories of gedolim who went out of their way to say thank you, and we did the same, thanking those who act kindly toward us, appreciating even the small acts that often go unnoticed. We’ve noticed that our efforts to show gratitude have benefited not just the people we’ve thanked, but have made us happier, more appreciative people as well.
