Character word for January is Perseverance


All About Perseverance

Learning Coaches,

This month, our character trait focus is Perseverance. We will learn what it means and how we can persevere in school, at home, and in our community. Learning happens best when it is done both at school and at home. Below are many ways that you can help your child continue to learn about the theme of perseverance through reading about it, talking about it, and practicing it! 😊

Read About It!

Here are some books to help you learn more about perseverance:

  • Salt in my Shoes: Michael Jordan in Pursuit of a Dream by Deloris Jordan

  • The Dot by Peter Reynolds

  • The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires

  • The Little Engine that Could by Watty Piper

Practice It!

Help your child learn to persevere by engaging in difficult tasks with him/her. Buy a large piece puzzle, learn, and perfect a new skill, etc. Find something to do together and commit to pushing each other through the challenge.

Talk About It!

Here are some discussion pants to help you talk about perseverance with your child:

  • What do you think perseverance means and why is it important?

  • Tell me about a time when it was hard to get through a challenge. How did you feel after?

  • What are some things that are hard for you to push through, and how can I help you?

  • What are 3 goals you have? What may be some challenges to meeting these goals? What will happen if you don’t give up?

Teacher of the Month! Jennifer Young
