Mrs. Hertz’s Fifth Grade Class

Ashlyn — I’m going to tell you What I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for shelter. Some people don’t have a home. So i don’t have to sleep in the cold. So I don’t have to be in the rain. I’m thankful for my family. So if I’m having trouble they can help me. So we can gather together. I’m thankful for food and water. So I don’t have to starve. And some people don’t have food and water. I’m thankful for my teacher. She helps me learn. She helps me when I need it. And she’s nice. Those things are what I’m thankful for and more. Thanks for reading this.

Emmarie — I’m thankful for my dogs because they bring joy to our family. I’m thankful for my friends because I would not have anyone to play with and my family too. I am thankful for shelter because some people don’t have shelter. I am thankful for my teacher. She is so much fun and nice.

Hannah — I am thankful for the toilet paper and hand sanitizer. It is cleaner to use. There is food and drinks too. We need toilet paper and hand sanitizer and cleaner. So the covid doesn’t get us. And if you were coughing stay home and don’t get anybody sick. I’m am thankful for food so if we run out of food we can go and get some and if the store is closed try to go somewhere else. And if we need something to drink go to the store and get some or have water and water is good for you. And I am thankful for my family so none of my family is sick and I am thankful for my friends that they aren’t sick or hurt. I am thankful God and Jesus because they watch over me. I am thankful for the people that saved people’s lives called fighters and the police EMT. I am thankful for my school and all of the teachers that teach them how to read or write and i am thankful for Rose Hertz, my teacher. She is the nicest teacher ever. She lets people get toys if you have all the ixls that she has inside and she gets a toy which is done with 10 typing clubs.

Autumn — I am thankful for shelter, food, water, and family. I am thankful for shelter because some people live on the street. So when there is bad weather we are safe. I am thankful for food and water because if you do not eat you could die. You need to eat to stay healthy. I am thankful for family because they keep you company. If you are sick they take care of you. They also keep you safe.

Eric — These are the things I am thankful for. Food, water and fishing. Food because you can not just eat candy and beef jerky you need meat and vegetables. Water so you can stay hydrated. Fishing because I like being outside in the fresh air. Family because they love and care for me. My house because I have someplace to stay at night.

Luke — I am thankful for many things. I am going to tell you three things I am thankful for: here you go. I am thankful for shelter, my desk with materials, Parents, and hunting. I am thankful for shelter because some people do not have shelter. Some people have to live under bridges. I am glad to have shelter because when it gets cold I stay warm in my house others freeze. In my house I have my room that I can call my own. I am thankful for my desk with materials because I like to build things. I made a huge Captain America shield from cardboard. I made a sword out of cardboard and tin foil. I am thankful for my parents because they support me in sports and all sorts of things. They wake me up every day and make me breakfast. They help me get supplies for my crafts. They play games with me like ping pong and air hockey. They take me sledding, fishing and kayaking. They make me breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I am thankful for hunting because getting a deer is really exciting. When you get a deer you can have deer steak. It is fun watching the deer before you shoot. It is really really fun when you get the deer in the first 45 minutes of hunting. That was three things that I am thankful for.

Bailey — I am thankful for many things but I’m just going to list three things. First of all, I am very thankful for my dad taking me deer and turkey hunting. I am also very thankful for food. I am also thankful for my teacher. So my dad has taken me deer hunting since I was 8. And turkey hunting since I was 9. My favorite food I have made with turkeys is turkey nuggets, which is basically schnitzel. My favorite food I have made with deer are deer burgers. I have gotten 3 deer and 1 turkey. I am sometimes a picky eater but when something I like is made, I just absolutely love it! My favorite food is biscuits and gravy, spaghetti, chicken alfredo, and cheeseburgers and fries. Oh, and schnitzel, of course. My brother loves chicken alfredo and chicken nuggets and fries. My favorite drink is probably Coca Cola. And finally I am very, very, very thankful for my teacher, Mrs Hertz. She is so nice and encouraging. Whenever I or one of my classmates needs help, she always helps. She is always helpful. She is my favorite teacher. So that is what I am thankful for. Like I said before, that was just three things. I have many more. That was just my top three.

Erin — This is what I’m thankful for. I am thankful for my family, electronics, and school. The reason why I’m in school is to learn. If I didn’t go to school, how would I learn? Also I can get away from home and be with my friends. I love Menno School. The reason I’m thankful for electronics is so I can play “Among US” and other games. So I can have a phone or tablet laptop. So I can call my mom, my dad and family. The reason I’m thankful for my family is so I can do things with them like camping movies, and game night. This is a time to be thankful you should be too.

Mirik — I’m thankful for my dog. I’m thankful for my video games. I’m thankful for my mom and dad. I’m thankful for my mom and dad because they do lots of things with me. My dad taught me how to drive. My mom taught me how to cook. They take care of me and dad takes me hunting. That’s why I’m thankful for my mom and dad. I’m thankful for my dog because I can play with him. I can also chase him around to see if I’m faster than him. I take him fishing, walks and rides on the side by side. I can throw his hot dog and race him and race him to it. This is why I’m thankful for my dog. I’m thankful for my video games because I can play with my friends and have fun. I can play whatever game I want that I have on my phone. I can play games on my TV if i connect my phone to it. I can play them in the car or anywhere I want. This is why I’m thankful for my video games. This is why I’m thankful for my mom and dad, my dog, and my video games.

Brooks — I am thankful for many things in modern day life. I am thankful for my family and friends. I am thankful for technology in helping people with sickness. I am also thankful for food, water, and medicine too so I can survive. I am thankful for my family for many reasons. I am thankful for them helping me with work. They provide me with food. They also help me feel better sometimes. They are a big part of my life. They also buy stuff we don’t need just so we’re entertained. Technology has helped many people live. That’s one of the several reasons I am thankful for technology. It helps keep us entertained all the time. It can help people that don’t have limbs. It can help people that can’t hear well. Technology is important to people’s health and that’s why I am thankful for it. Food helps us stay alive. It can even change the way you act. Water and other liquids are also amazing things that keep us alive. Medicine has been an important part of people’s lives. And without it people would have harder times than they do with medicine. These are all things I am grateful for because they all help us with life. These are things I am grateful for. There are even more reasons why I am grateful for these but this is even enough you should be grateful for these things too. I think all these things are important in our lives and everyone should be grateful for them.

Ruby — I have many things to be thankful for. I am thankful for food, friends, and toilet paper. I am thankful for food because I don’t want to starve to death. I am also thankful for food Because my family makes it for me. I like to make food with my family, it’s fun. I think food is important for many reasons. So that is why I am thankful for food. I am also thankful for friends. I am thankful for them because I would go insane without them. I am thankful for my friends because they are fun to talk to and hang out with. They are funny too. That’s why I am thankful for my friends. Finally the one you’ve been waiting for TOILET PAPER. If we didn’t have it, I don’t know what we would use. We would smell like 10 times worse. You would maybe spend money on a bidet aka a fancy toilet. So that’s why I am thankful for toilet paper.

October — I am thankful for my dog, boxer, my friends and family, and drawing supplies (i draw A LOT). Boxer has been with me and my dad for about 4 or 3 years. He has been a very good dog. Even though his name is boxer, he is actually a German Shepard. I have tried to train him for several long, long hours. But it was worth it! He can do many things (sit, fetch, jump, lay, shake, etc), is house broken, and has become an amazing family dog. He is always there when we need him (even though he can accidentally get in the way…). I personally think my dad should treat him better. But I don’t really consider Boxer as just a dog. I think of him as a friend. I honestly don’t know what I would do without family and friends. I may be pretty antisocial, but I always like to do stuff with people I already know. I am usually not the first to speak or say “hi” to a new person but i am glad that they did it before me. My family is always by my side and I know I can trust them. And I know my friends will stick with me to the end. When I have nothing to do, I always just have fun with them. Some can get annoying (Emberly) but I still care for them just the same. Family, friends, and my dog are more important but i am still thankful for paper, pencils, colors and stuff like that. They have cured my boredom many times and it is my best hobby. I have been drawing since I was 3! Everyone says I am very, very good. But I don’t do it just for praises (actually, I feel very awkward and sometimes embarrassed when I am told I am very good), I do it for the joy. Not joking, if I was let to, i would sit for hours just drawing. but I do have limits, like I don’t like drawing humans. Animals (more specifically mammals) are what I am best at and enjoy the most. I just wish I was allowed to more.

Emmalyn — This is what I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for family, shelter and education. I’m thankful for my family because if I do something helpful I get help back. If I get sick my family takes care of me like I do for them when they are sick. I take care of my siblings when I am asked even if I want to go to my room. I’m thankful for hunting with my dad because I get to spend time with my dad. I’m thankful for baking with my mom because I get to spend time with her. My siblings are awesome even though they sometimes make me mad. I’m thankful for shelter over my head. I’m happy that I have shelter over my head because it keeps me and my family safe from bad weather. Shelter also keeps me warm or cools me off during the day and night no matter what the weather is. I’m thankful for shelter because some people don’t have shelter where they live, their home is either the street or a shelter for the homeless. I also love shelter because it makes me cozy with my family when we watch a movie together. I am also thankful for education because my teachers made work fun and they all made me smarter. They had fun learning games for my class and we still do some this day. My favorite subject is reading because without reading I wouldn’t be able to read. These are only three things that I’m thankful for I have way more. I think that November is a good month for being thankful because of the holiday Thanksgiving. We don’t just have to be thankful on Thanksgiving we should be thankful all the time. Here is what I am thankful for. So please be thankful for what you have. So one thing I am thankful for is being able to do a lot of stuff. I am thankful for many things. I am thankful for phones. I am thankful for a lot of things on your phone. I am thankful for video games. I am thankful for hunting for deer. And eating them. So that is all I am thankful for this year. Why I am thankful for all of that stuff is so you can do stuff. If you did not have stuff to do like that you won’t be happy. So have you thought about what you are thankful for. If not please do that then. Please have a great thanksgiving.

Garret — Here is what I am thankful for. So please be thankful for what you have. So one thing I am thankful for is being able to do a lot of stuff. I am thankful for many things. I am thankful for phones. I am thankful for a lot of things on your phone. I am thankful for video games. I am thankful for hunting for deer. And eating them. So that is all I am thankful for this year. Why I am thankful for all of that stuff is so you can do stuff. If you did not have stuff to do like that you won’t be happy. So have you thought about what you are thankful for. If not please do that then. Please have a great thanksgiving.

Tyler — I will tell you what I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for shelter, food, and a school. Shelter I’m thankful for because I need it to live and have a good class to go to and have fun, food I’m thankful for because I can have veggies to grow strong, school because I love my teacher and the fun we have at recess and lunch and work. I am thankful for be born because I got to meet new people and become friends with them. I am also thankful for having a family because I love my little Brother, big Sister, Mom, John, Brad, and Josh for being there for me. Next I am thankful for my teacher also being there for me to help in all the subjects. I am thankful for masks, bathrooms, and my classmates. Why? Because I can protect myself, I can wash off germs and be clean and I can be social around people. I am thankful for myself because I have a good life and I want to keep it that way. And I am thankful for myself because I can do what God wants us to do. And I can do what Jesus would do if he was alive, do what is right not wrong. I am thankful for thanksgiving because I get to have family time with my family. Also because i can get delicious food and have a great time. Then I would pray to Jesus and talk to God. I’m thankful for technology to get us through the dark ages. Technology is also great to see friends when they’re quarantined. Technology was the best when the dark ages had to be over with. Be thankful for what you have, don’t be spoiled like the rich kids. So be nice and be thankful for what you have be nice to your parents and DON’T steal the money like the rich spoiled kids out there.

The first thing that I am thankful for is my family. I am thankful for my family because they take care of me, feed me, and look out for me. I am also thankful for my good health. The reason I am thankful for my good health is that I can see my niece Sophia. She is one year old and very fun to play with. She even is learning to say, “Wyatt!” I am also thankful for the food I eat. I am thankful for food because it keeps me energized throughout the day, and it is tasty. These are some of the things I am thankful for. — Wyatt S.

What am I thankful for? The things I am most thankful for around Thanksgiving are stuffing, football, and banana cream pie. I am thankful for stuffing because it is one of my favorite Thanksgiving sides. My grandma always makes the best stuffing. I am also thankful for football. Football is my favorite sport. Plus, it is so fun to play football with my friends. My favorite team is the Minnesota Vikings. I’m also thankful for desserts. I really enjoy desserts because there are not many that I have not liked. Banana cream pie is the best dessert. These are what I am thankful for. — Gavin N.

What am I thankful for? I am thankful for my family and friends. My family and friends care for me, and they help bring up my mood. My friends always ask if I am okay. I am also thankful for my teachers. My teachers help me learn. My teachers give me math and reading assessments. Lastly, I am thankful for video games. My video games help with math and reading, and some games for my own entertainment. My favorite games are Minecraft, Fortnite, Apex, Prodigy, and Kahoot. This is what I am most thankful for. — Austyn C-W

What am I thankful for? I am most thankful for my parents. My parents help me with everything I need. One thing they help me with is sports. They drive me to wherever my game is taking place. That is why I am most thankful for my parents. I am also thankful for the hospital. The hospital helps you if you are hurt or if you are sick. They will give you medicine if you do not feel well. They help with everything they can. That is why I am thankful for the hospital. Lastly, I am thankful for food and water. Food and water are the things that keep you alive. I drink water so I stay hydrated and eat food to keep your body healthy. Food will help you keep your protein up. That is why I am thankful for food and water. — Levi S.

These are the three things I’m thankful for and why. The three things I am most thankful for our food and water and family and friends. I am thankful for food and water because it allows me to water my plants, shower, enjoy snacks, and eat three meals a day. I’m also thankful for my family because I can trust them with everything. They can help me out with homework, and they can cheer me up at any time. The last thing I am thankful for is my friends. I love my friends. My friends are like my second family. I can trust them no matter what, and I always hang out with them at school. This is why I am thankful. — Tiffany K.

I have a lot of things I’m thankful for, but these are three things that make me the most thankful. I love my family because they are always protective and there for me. When I am having a bad day, my sister gives me a pep talk to cheer me up. Another thing that I am thankful for is my home. My home shelters me, keeps me warm during the winter, and cool in the summer. I am also thankful for apples and bananas. These fruits keep me healthy and energetic. They give me the proteins that my body needs. Family, my home, and fruit are what make me the most thankful. — Anthony C-W
