In my classroom, every Thursday is “Thankful Thursday.” Many of the answers are similar from week to week while some are unique and a little cheeky…
“Good morning, friends! Today is Thankful Thursday and I’m wondering what you’re thankful for today. Who would like to share?”
E: “For everything.”
M: “My mom and dad”
C: “For you and the class and all of my friends and family.”
J: “Uhhh… can I have some time to think about it?”
Me: “Sure, let me know when you think about it.”
J: “The new season of Fortnite.”
M: “My birthday in a few weeks.”
E: “Where we live because flowers can grow here. In some places flowers don’t grow and I just noticed the flowers growing in my backyard. Without flowers I would be sad.”
L: “The rain because the earth needs it.”
*J raises his hand.*
Me: “Oh good! You thought of something. What are you thankful for today, J?”
J: “My butt.”
*laughter ensues* I have to look away. And then, I can’t help but laugh along with them.
A CHEEKY Thankful Thursday for the books.
Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by
LOL! Thanks for the laugh!
Awesome. I didn´t expect that ending. It made me laugh good.
Your word play — along with J’s — kicks butt.
I love posts that capture kid’s thoughts and words. So glad you captures this moment- and added the perfect title- I didn’t see that coming!
I enjoyed the word play and how the title suddenly takes on a new meaning after reading the end!
