Today, I asked students to compose a toast for Thanksgiving dinner. Nakhia Gates wrote the following toast, which was one of my favorites. Bravo dear, I am thankful to have you in my class.
I am thankful for the clothes on my back, the shoes on my feet, the roof over my head, and the food I eat. I am thankful for my family that loves me, my friends who hang with me, my brothers and sisters who annoy me, my aunts and uncles who love me, my grandparents who spoil me, and my mom and dad who made me.
