My family comes together on Thanksgiving. That makes me feel happy because not every family gets to together on Thanksgiving. I thank my grandmas for making the wonderful food.
Family is very important because if one person gets hurt you will need your family to help you. My family sticks together through good and bad times. They always help me with my homework. My cousins and I play whenever we see each other. I think about how all the storms lately have destroyed houses and everything they have.

Do you have anything to be thankful for like family, friends, food, or school? I have many things that I am thankful for. I am thankful for family, Jesus, God, love, friends, water and food. If all these things and people didn’t exist, none of us would be here today. I think Thanksgiving is an important event for families because we all get to spend time with each other. Thanksgiving is also a time to be thankful for everything that is living on Earth today.
Thanksgiving is important to me because I get to spend time with my family like eating dinner together, talking to each other, and play games like Apples to Apples. I am thankful for my family because they do so much for me that I want to do something for them. My mom makes sure that I stay healthy, helps me with homework, cooks dinner, and plays with me. My dad plays with me, teases me, and also makes sure that I am healthy. My cousin Paige is smart, funny, generous, and fun because she comes up with creative ideas for us to do. My cousin Kayleen is generous, funny, smart, and helpful.
Two fo the greatest people in the world are Jesus and God. One reason I am thankful for God is that he created Earth and the people to live on it. The last reason I am thankful for God is that his greatest son, Jesus, put Jesus on Earth. One reason I am thankful for Jesus is that he died on the cross for our sins. The second reason I am thankful for Jesus is that he will always be our forever friend. My last reason is that he will always be with and will always love each and every one of us.

We give respect by accepting the differences of others and promoting respect with people who have different values from our own. America is definitely a country of independence. American citizens get a say and do what we want unlike other countries. We also get to vote for who we want for our president or other public offices. America id definitely a country of freedom. America is a country of amendments that have given us our freedoms. We always have the opportunity to make our country better. Although times have been sometimes rough, America is able to come back from bad points and improve on good points. America is a great country to live in. I love America.

Things I am thankful for
Thanksgiving is a time for eating turkey and thinking about what is most important in life. I am most thankful for my family, my house, and my teachers. I am most thankful for my family because they take care of me by making food for me and helping me with my homework. My family also takes me on vacations and we spend time together having fun. I am also thankful for my home. My house protects me from storms and keeps us warm in the winter and cool in the summer. If I did not have a house, I would not be able to keep my important stuff safe. I am also thankful for my teachers because I would not be able to learn they also let you do fun things sometimes.

Family
I love my family so much. They give me opportunities, love, and they appreciate the things I do well. My family gives me the opportunity to play sports. My family let me play volleyball and soccer. These are fun because I like to hit the ball in volleyball and in soccer I am a goalie. My family gives my sister and I lots of love. They show me love because they let me go to my friend’s house and my uncle’s house. They always get my sister and I gifts and take us lots of places like the mall and Wal-Mart. I know they give me appreciation because they say “good job” when I get a 100% on a test. They even give ma a hug when I get bad grades and encourage me to do better.

This Thanksgiving
This Thanksgiving I am looking forward to eating with my family and cherishing the memories with each other. I am also looking forward to sharing laughs and just spending time with those that mean the most to me. Some of my favorite memories would be when all of the girls in my family get together and help cook for Thanksgiving. Another memory would be when all my cousins are together and having fun playing games with each other. Some laughs we would share would be about all the great stores our parents tell us each year. We also enjoy thinking about the times when my grandma’s bird was alive and when the bird would repeat everything we said.

Ringing bells for dinner is ready
Kind to everyone on thankgiving
Eating delicious turkey dinner
Yelping for food
Singing happy carols
Clinging forks and knives on plates
Licking spoons of delicious soup
Unless there’s no turkey it isn’t thanksgiving
Crunching on carrots
Kind to the cat and petting her back
Into the oven goes the turkey
Never greedy
Giving joy to everyone
Clock ticking as the oven rings ding
Licking forks of delicious turkey
Unless your greedy you get nothing
Clicking the remote for T.V.
Knowing that we have food
Sasha – Grade 4

Think of the pilgrims
Hide the turkey
Aren’t you coming to dinner
Now the guest are here
Know that people are nice
Soup is boiling
Giving can of food to the homeless
In the trance of pie
Vehicles driving to family
In need will be helped
Nice people bring mash potato
Greedy one bring nothing

Things I’m Thankful for
Thanksgiving reminds me of all the things I’m thankful for. I’m especially thankful for parents, cats and freedom.

I am thankful for multiple things. I am very thankful for my family. I have a really cool dad. My mom is one of the kindest people I know. My brother neat, creative kid.
I have really awesome pets. Nina, my adorable rhodesian ridgeback is an amazing friend. I have 2 cats an they are so much fun to play with.
I am thankful for my friends. Friends are there to help you when you are down.
Especially around election time, I think about how important the right to vote is. I am not old enough to vote and in some ways I can see why kids aren’t allowed to vote. The right to vote was important enough to make a group of guys start a new country, our country. This was punnishable with death. I wish more people would vote and not see it as a burden. It is a day off for us school kids at least.
Overall, I am thankful for many things including family, pets, friends and the right to vote.
