Splat the Cat and Gratitude

On November 17th, 2015, Mrs. Proudman's class came to the library for their weekly visit.  We have been working on our Global Read Aloud project for many weeks, so it was nice to do something a little different.  Since this would be our last library visit before Thanksgiving break, we spent some time discussing gratitude.

We began the visit by reading Splat Says Thank You! by Rob Scotton.  Although this was not a book specifically about Thanksgiving, the book discussed gratitude between Splat and Seymour, two great friends.  In order to thank Seymour for the many wonderful things he has done, Splat makes a thank you book for Seymour.  Mrs. Proudman's students were able to share examples of gratitude they have for their family and friends.

We were excited to learn that Splat Says Thank You! is part of a larger series about Splat the Cat.  We are looking forward to reading more Splat books in the future.

Next, we spent time thinking about different things we are grateful for.  This was a great opportunity to practice our penmanship skills.  After answering each question, we shared our answers with the rest of the class.  It was interesting to learn about the different things we all enjoy.  The pictures below show some of the things Mrs. Proudman's students are grateful for.

After our activity, students had time to check out books, color, and work with modeling clay.  Our next library class will be Wednesday, December 2nd.
