Teaching our little learners to be thankful is something that is very important to me. I’ve shared some of my favorite books about being thankful here in the past.
And even have a cute free printable I’m Thankful Turkey Hat too that your kiddos can fill out what their thankful for. They can take them home to wear on Thanksgiviing with their family.
This year, I was searching for a new book about being thankful to add to my collection this year, and came across a new book, I Am Thankful.
I Am Thankful is an adorable, rhyming book that follows three different families as they celebrate Thanksgiving with their own traditions, acts of kindness, and ways of giving back. I absolutely loved this book!

In the back of the book, it gives some great suggestions of how your students can show that they are thankful. They can all be adapted to be done both in the classroom or at home.
Taking a tip from the book, I made a Free Printable I Am Thankful Turkey Placemat so you can easily do it with your class.
For the I Am Thankful Turkey Placemat, you’ll simply start by downloading it at the bottom of this blog post. Print one for each student. They can fill in one thing or a few things that they are thankful for. They can fill it in on the line at the bottom. Or maybe they want to add some more, they have enough room to fill in each of the leaves and turkey with additional things they are thankful for.
Have them color the placemat to finish it up. You can then just send them home with your students. Or you can laminate them so they can be used and wiped like a placemat. Or another fun option is to have them use a glue stick and attach them to a larger piece of colored construction paper and then laminate to make it more of a holiday gift/decoration to send home.
A little twist on an all-time classic turkey handprint. It just isn’t Thanksgiving without one is it?
