Monday Made-It: Thanksgiving Craftiness

Happy Monday, friends!
I am linking up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for her monthly "Monday Made it" linky party!

 Thank-you in Many Languages:
Continuing our discussion of thankfulness, we learned different ways to say "thank-you" in various languages from around the world.

The students wrote thank-you prayers to God, thanking Him for His presence in their lives.
 
Thanksgiving Cards:

Lastly, I have a 12x12 scrapbook frame hanging in our front hallway that I change out each month. Here is my scrapbook page for November:
