Being thankful is an every practice.  Teaching children to say “Thank You” is important.  How to help kids to have the sense of gratitude in them is the core and the goal.

In Chinese culture, gratitude starts at being respectful to parents in a family.  “A youth, when at home, should be filial, and, being outside of home, be respectful to his elders.”.  The original text is “Dìzǐ rù zé xiào chū zé dì  弟子入則孝 出則弟弟子入则孝 出则弟” from Confucian Analects, Hsio R.

As I am teaching children Chinese language I always want to find opportunities to connect Chinese language with Chinese culture.  I also want kids to compare their family and community culture with the Chinese culture.  When we do that students see that many cultures have similar virtue. 

Teaching Tips: This set of Chinese thank you cards and a thank you poster are for every day use. 

  • Post the thank you poster on a poster board on the wall. 
  • Have strips of colored papers and crayons or colored pencils nearby. 
  • Whenever children want to say thank you for someone or something they can write it down on the paper and add it to this Thank You poster board. 
  • They can draw pictures or write in Chinese or in English. 
  • This board will be a growing source of Chinese vocabulary and expressions to add to the teaching plan.

Stories about being thankful is also a good activity to go with this project.  You can add reading The Thank you book (Chinese edition) from Mo Willems to this activity.  More reading choices are I am thankful every day, The Thankful Book, Thanksgiving Is for Giving Thanks, and Being Thankful .

Ideas to teach gratitude to children:

  1. Being an example for the kids.
  2. Being respectful.
  3. Being polite.
  4. Saying thank you sincerely.
