Before I get to this week's positive thought, I wanted to share a very quick, easy & fun writing activity that you can do today -- The Twelve Word Poem.
Why do you need to do it TODAY? Because December is the 12th month and there are 12 days of school left before winter break. (Really, you could do this any time, I just thought it would be fun to try to make as many connections as possible!)
Here are the guidelines:
- Your poem can only have twelve words.
- It must be about December.
- It must make sense.

After they wrote their poem, they typed them up, added a graphic if they wanted, and printed them out for their writing treasure chests. Here are a few of their poems:
And now for this week's Positive Thinking Thursday thought:
Wishing you an amazing day!
