I was given a Thanksgiving Grateful Blessed tag by MOM LIFE WITH CHIARI. THANK YOU. If I remember my school history lesson -Thanksgiving although a North American holiday has links with England and its Reformation times. On a much much less grand scale we have our Harvest Festivals. I’ve now completely exhausted my Thanksgiving schooling. Doesn’t say much for our education system or more likely my day dreaming tendencies during lessons.


1. List your thankful ABC.

2. Add one theme clip art to your post.

3. Tag 3 people who’d you hope would participate.

My Tags (only do this if you want to)

      1. Yup, that’s exactly so. One of the summer school teachers was like that. The teacher had a pretty intense series of expectations of the kids, but…it’s summer. they’re 5. how well does ANY 5yr old listen? but some teachers demand kids to be little silent robots. Heck, my sister-in-law gets super uptight when her own toddler boy gets rowdy, and she taught elementary for a few years. I think some teachers only like kids when they’re super calm and super obedient all the time, and just don’t know what to do when kids aren’t. Honestly, I think a good teacher of children’s still got to have a streak of childlike innocence insider her/himself. When that streak’s not there, they can’t connect to the wild games/role play/imagination/etc.
