Hey there…If you are a parent, grandparent or future parent, I am writing this blog post to you. This year, as the weather has turned colder and the leaves are falling, I’m reminded of a very important holiday that is just over a month away…Thanksgiving.
I love Thanksgiving! Many years ago, when my son was very young, I decided to start a holiday tradition. That tradition was to never start our Thanksgiving meal without first going around the table and having everyone tell what they are thankful for.
The first few years my son was okay with ‘Momma’s tradition’ but once he was in high school and we began inviting people that were not immediate family (sometimes his friends), he began a little eye rolling. I could just hear his non-spoken words, “Seriously, Mom, this is embarrassing!”
However, he is now a college graduate, married and expecting his first child and I can honestly say that in the last few years, I’ve seen a shift. Not only are his eyes no longer rolling but his answers are more profound and thoughtful.
Being thankful isn’t just a once a year thing in our home. Our lives haven’t always been easy. Just like every family we’ve had very happy times but we’ve also had some extremely tough times. Those painful times include being homeless after losing everything in Hurricane Katrina, living in less than ideal circumstances, depending on others for food and clothing and I could go on.
However, through it all, I had to make a conscious decision, often daily and sometimes even minute by minute, to choose thankfulness and gratitude.
My name is Lynda Ackert. I am a wife, a mother, a soon-to-be grandmother and the owner of My Teaching Library.
Today, my heart is to write to you about purposeful gratitude. As Thanksgiving approaches, my hope is that this reaches at least one momma (or daddy) that needs to be reminded that our children are always watching and learning from us and how we choose to live life.
Are we demonstrating a life of thankfulness and gratitude?
We can teach every subject (reading, writing, history, math, science…), using the best curriculum on the market, but that curriculum can’t teach our children the most valuable lessons of life. Life will teach these lessons and you are your children’s best teacher.
I do hope you’ll take a little space…right now to ask yourself, “What am I truly thankful for and how am I demonstrating my gratitude in front of my children?”
If anything I’ve written today has touched you in a positive way, please feel free to let me know. You can find me on My Teaching Library’s FB group or you can email me on my website’s contact form.
Typically when I write, I share about the educational products you can find on My Teaching Library but that wasn’t my purpose today. However, in the next couple weeks, I will be sharing some fun, Thanksgiving themed MTL products with you on my FB group. I’ll also be asking parents to share about their special family traditions, so I hope you’ll join me!
The Christmas story can be found in both Matthew and Luke. It is the beautiful story of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. My Teaching Library has created two copywork products (one using the KJV version, one using the NIV version) to help students learn the story and at the same time, practice valuable skills (keep reading to find out what these skills include).
If you aren’t interested in the actual copywork products and you simply want to read the story to your children, here it is (using the NIV version):
The Christmas Story Luke 2:1-20 1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to their own town to register. 4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. 6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them. 8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” 15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” 16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
You may be wondering what benefits can be found in having your children copy text such as this. Aside from helping them learn the story, you may be asking, Why put in the time and effort to simply copy what they are reading?”
Why copywork? Copywork is copying a piece of well-written work, from any variety of sources, onto paper or into a notebook. The student copies from a written selection using his best penmanship to create a “perfect copy” that is properly spaced and includes all proper capitalization and punctuation marks. It is a method, that when used consistently, will improve your child’s penmanship, grammar, and punctuation skills as well as expose him to a variety of writing styles, structures, and techniques.
The arctic fox is an incredibly hardy animal that can survive frigid Arctic temperatures as low as –58°F in the treeless lands where it makes its home.
It has furry soles, short ears, and a short muzzle—all-important adaptations to the chilly clime. Arctic foxes live in burrows, and in a blizzard they may tunnel into the snow to create shelter.
Common Name: Arctic Fox Scientific Name: Vulpes lagopus Type: Mammals Diet: Omnivore Group Name: Skulk, leash Average life span in The Wild: 3 to 6 years Size: Head and body: 18 to 26.75 inches; tail: up to 13.75 inches Weight: 6.5 to 17 pounds
