About the Book
This Resource Guide is perfect for solidifying children’s awareness and practice of gratitude as presented in the Grateful Jake Book, and encouraging them to begin developing an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’. This guide is made for classroom use by teachers and also includes adaptations for home schooling purposes or to have some fun activities to do together as a family! The guide includes: * 12 different lesson plans based on the Grateful Jake Book * Distinct learning objectives and Assessment Rubrics * Variety of handouts to complement the lessons * Additional resources, including a Math Worksheet, Word Search, Vocabulary list, and Story Sequence handout * Comprehension, Word Study and Critical Thinking worksheet * Coloring Sheets.

My Take on the Book
In the table of contents, there are 12 activities listed. Each activity will give the teacher specific suggestions using the Grateful Jake books written by Emily Madill.

The activities provide opportunities for discussion and hands on creativity. Some of the ideas include "acting" for the students. Some of the suggestions ask the students to write. You can use art an an option too.

All the entries are written in the format of a lesson plan. The resource book is well written and I believe using Emily's books and this resource book will open an avenue of discussion with your students you may not have had before.
