Teaching Kids Thank You in Different Languages

We've been learning about gratitude and thankfulness. We did a preschool lesson on how to say, read, and write thank you in several different languages! This is the perfect free printable sheet for Thanksgiving or any time of year.

We were recently inspired by our trip to Disney World where our preschooler enjoyed seeing how to say goodbye in several languages on the It's a Small World ride!

With Thanksgiving this week we discussed how to say thank you in other languages.

Our preschooler wrote the words in different colored crayons as we said and spelled them.

We have using the words in context all week, too!

Do you speak several languages in your family? Please tell us in the comments below! 

This would be a great thank you note for community helpers like mail carriers and bus drivers!

  1. I love the idea of practicing saying and writing thank you in several languages. It teaches children that gratitude is expressed all over the world.

  2. I love this idea. It would be fun to practice at the breakfast table each morning. I used to do this when I greeted each bus that arrived to school when I was an administrator too.

  3. LOVE this! It would be a great way for teachers to include families that speak different languages too! Spaciba is how we say Thank You in Russian!

  4. What a great way to encourage kids to learn about different cultures! Playing with languages is powerful learning for preschoolers! Love it!
