I teach 3rd grade and this is what some of their "I am thankful for" papers said:
"I am thankful for love, food, and god for blessing us. Love for everybody won't be so mean and stuff. Food for giving us the taste and the juice. And all the stuff that help us."
"I am thankful for my family because they support me in doing things."
"I am thankful for my family because they give me shelter and clothes and food and sometimes even dogs or cats."
"I am thankful for my toys because if I didn't have toys it would be a boring life."
"I am thankful for my family because without a family we could not take care of our self and we would die."
The assistant principal at our school just got engaged in front of the whole school and this is what one of my students wrote:
"I am thankful that Ms. Boswell is going to get married because we won't have to call her Ms. Boswell."
