I have lots of privileges because I live in the United States.

Freedom of speech in the U.S.A. is great! I have the power to tell

our president I don't like something. I have freedom to be whom I

want to be when I grow up. I can work hard to earn money for my

savings. My friends and I can vote when we are 18. In the U.S.A., we

have the right for a good education. In the Community Learning

Center, I get to study United States, go to class with third- and


fourth-graders and go on lots of field trips.

God has blessed me with many opportunities. God has given me a

brother and sister to make my life happier. He has given me a lots of

friends like Ryan and Emma. They are my best friends. I am thankful

that God is with me.


Third grade

Many of the things that I'm thankful come from my heart and my

brain. I am thankful for so many things, I couldn't list them in a

hundred years.

The thing I think is the coolest thing about being thankful is

important thing to me is my family. I love my mom, dad, myself and my

sister. If we would all appreciate more of the things that should be

appreciated, think what the world would be like.

The things that I treasure aren't even close to how much I love my

people and ask them to do the same and on and on, you will be

appreciated not just by me but many others and you will get PEACE ON

EARTH. I want you to think about what I said and you will see large

results very quick.


Fourth grade

I am thankful for all the people that care for me. My mom makes me

wonderful meals, pasta and other yummy stuff. My dad plays Clue with

me and other games. My sister cares for me by comforting me when I am

sad. Adam is a great friend by running on the soccer field with me.

I am thankful for all the food and drinks that keep me alive. I

eat fruit, vegetables, grains and protein. Sometimes I have treats,

too. Anyway, protein helps your body grow strong and healthy. Protein

helps your body a lot and you could die without it. I am glad to have

protein in this world. Milk has protein in it. In fact, a lot of

things have protein in them. I am glad to have all these things to be

thankful for.


Third grade

I am thankful for my mom and dad. I am also thankful for God and

hospitals and the loving care they give us.

But how would we get a good education without school? I'm also
