I want to talk with my students about things that we should be thankful for. I want to guide their thinking, as always, to the Bible, and what we can be thankful for according to the Bible. I put together this acrostic poem of the word, “THANKFUL”, with words that match each letter and a Bible verse to correspond with each of those words.

- We’ve also uploaded a “blank” version with just the word THANKFUL.
After you have read through the Bible verses and discussed meaningful things to be thankful for, you can now have your students make their own acrostic with this blank form.
