Lesson: “Thank You” Canon

You simply can’t have too many rounds and canons in your teaching repertoire.  Nor can you have too much gratitude in your life and classroom!  This “Thank You” canon is intentionally written to be very simple so students can learn and perform it quickly.  We know that it is helpful to have simple lessons that can be completed in one class period. This one should work well for you. We’ve included a cooperative learning activity with students writing word chains of gratitude that we think will be fun for both you and your students.
