November is the month of Thanksgiving. A turkey, a family dinner, giving thanks... This is one of the ideas how to celebrate this Day at school.
Being a participant of the round table “Eurasia/South Asia Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program Alumni. Best Practicies and Experiences Exchange”, organized by Cultural Affairs Section, US Embassy in Ukraine on November 16-17, 2012, I’ve got great ideas from my colleagues of celebrating Thanksgiving in our school.
On this day people consider the things they should be thankful for. That's why it is the perfect month for students to give thanks.
On November 27, 2012, early in the morning members of Novyi Rozdil school 4 euroclub "Promin Europy" got big sheets of paper and colourful pens ready in the school hall. They invited everybody to write their thanks to people they thought deserve a small amount of recognition. Students addressed their friends, teachers, parents, the school headmaster. Teachers wrote their Thank you to students for being diligent.
Everybody got the opportunity to write their thoughts on that day. It was a great fun.
The posters were displayed in the school hall during the whole week.
