Thankful Thursday #3 in March 2013



This has been a crazy busy week for me, so it is definitely time to reflect, and get a little perspective.
I am so thankful for:

  • coworkers who can laugh even in the midst of writing school improvement plan on yet another format (that refuses to update any editing changes)
  • chocolate--it can make any day more sweeter
  • the student who finally gave a right answer to the speaking test question that none had answered correctly before (we are in the middle of assessing all our ELL students)
  • wonderful student blogs--really can't say enough
  • students who surprise me with their work
  • only seven more days till the beginning of my spring break!
  • wonderful comments that I have received this past week
  • warm blankets to sit under when writing
  • for students who miss me when I am in a meeting and not in the classroom
  • did I mention already: only seven days until my spring breaks starts!!
  • the promise of spring even though there is no evidence of it outside (we are @ 40-50 degrees colder than last year at this time)
  • local bookstore; great place to walk around maybe even buy a book to read
  • comments that many of you have left on my class blog
  • cold weather ( no bugs can survive this cold)--trying really hard to find reasons to be thankful that I still freeze when leaving my home in the mornings:-)
  • that tomorrow is Friday!
  • you who read my list; hope you also have much to be thankful for!

Wishing all of you a great day!

  1. I try to write a gratitude list daily. It gives us perspective and a way to remember all that we have. Lovely list.

  2. When we step back and assess what's good, we find so much to be grateful for. I hope the days to spring break fly by and the break gives you the rest to finish out the year.

  4. We all need to step back and think of what we have to be thankful for. I liked that you said thankful for cold weather...because of no bugs. What a positive way to look at the weather that so many people are waiting for some warm weather. (and in the summer they will be complaining about it being too hot...well some will) I try to make a point of at least mentally listing things I am thankful for each day. I am thankful for your post today! Jackie http://familytrove.blogspot.com/

  6. Thank you for your thankful list. I am grateful for many things. The biggest is the moles I had removed were not cancerous.

  7. what a wonderfully long list of things to be thankful for! You are lucky indeed! (I loved the one about students who miss you. Last week I was with the testing students all week and only got to see my other students for a few minutes. When I walked in, they greeted me like I was a rock star. So sweet!)

    1. I have been testing for 3 weeks. My elementary students ask me every time I see them in the hallway: are you taking me today? I so wish I could.
