Thankful Thursday - 11th February

Thankful Thursday - introduction for F1 & F2

Today is Thankful Thursday. Mrs Turner introduces today's theme and activity.

Thankful Thursday

Today we are thinking about the things we are thankful for.

Focusing on the positives in our lives makes us happier.


Please listen to the story 'The Thankful Book' by Todd Parr on the video below.

After listening, talk with your child about what the characters in the book were thankful for.

Then talk together about the things you are all thankful for and why you are thankful for them.

Encourage speaking in a full sentence by using a sentence starter and modelling this when you tell your child what you are thankful for:

"I am thankful for _________ because _________."


The Thankful Book By Todd Parr

There are lots of things to be thankful for. Do I wrote a book about it. Love, Todd

Activity Time

Your child should draw a picture of something they are thankful for.

Use the same style for your picture as Todd Parr.

You will need:

  • A black felt-tip pen
  • A piece of paper
  • Bright coloured pens, paints, pens or crayons


What to do:

  • Use the black pen to draw a picture of something you are thankful for.
  • Use your bright colours to colour your picture just like Todd Parr does in his book.
  • Your adult can add a sentence to explain what you are thankful for.
  • Email a photo of your drawing to Mrs Turner (if you are in F2T) and Mrs Grout (if you are in F2GT).
