It has really helped me change the way I look at certain situations that arise in our teaching careers. I think it will change yours too. Click my button to check out my review!

Attitude of Gratitude FREEBIE

In the spirit of November I have a favorite story to lead into my lessons on gratitude.
If you've never read Thanksgiving at the Tappleton's find a copy and give it a go.
Then grab my freebie gratitude poster. I also have gratitude journal prompts too for those interested.

A gobble of thanks for stopping by!
