Another ELL teacher in our distict asked some of her ELL students what they were thankful for this year. Here are some of the responses:
*I am thankful for my parents because they take care of me. My mom buys me stuff. I am thankful for not walking to every place like I did in Somalia so I go in the car here and don't get so tired. I am thankful war not going around here.
*I am thankful for the parents I have and another reason I'm thankful is that I get to be in a place of a lot of opportunity's. Another thing is that I'm living.
*I am thankful for the opportunity to be an American. I am thankful for God for being there for me. I am thankful for my food because I have more here and always eat every day. I'm also thankful for people like you help me in life. Because life is a strange world but people help me through it.
And I am thankful that God humbles me and reminds me I am not thankful enough.
