I am thankful for my job because it allows me to meet wonderful students who are special in many different ways. I am thankful for my students because they work hard and show respect to me. They share their lives with me and allow me to help them learn. They make my job fun!

I am also thankful for my job because it helps me to support my family. We are able to use the money I make to buy the things we need and to do fun things together! I am thankful for my job because I work with many wonderful people who make it fun to come to work, and who help me when I need it. They make my job easier.

I am very thankful for my family and friends. They love me, support me, make me laugh, give me advice, help me get things done, and take care of me. I have so much fun spending time with them! I am also thankful that my family is healthy, feeling good, and can be very active!

I am thankful for my country. I love living in a country with so much diversity. It is very cool to meet so many different people and learn interesting things from their cultures. I am also very thankful to live in a country with so much freedom and economic prosperity. I am glad that I have a say in the decisions of my government and I am VERY thankful to have a sturdy shelter to live in, delicious food, clean water, and good healthcare (doctors, hospitals, and medicines).

I am thankful for the police officers and soldiers who keep our country safe and protect us.
