Counselor Corner

This week we are continuing to think about "When Life Gives Us Lemons, Make Lemonade." We are learning about having perseverance even when life is difficult! Click on the link below to take a look at my short video with Lucy from the Peanuts Gang:)

Here are a few optional activities to try at home to practice perseverance!

  1. Complete a project at home - organize your room, your closet, or your toy box, etc. Stick with it and don't give up, even if you divide the task over several days! Your parents will be sooooo excited!!!!
  2. Choose a skill you want to improve - shooting baskets, hitting a baseball, throwing a football, dribbling a soccer ball, rollerblading, skateboarding, playing a song w/ an instrument, painting a picture, etc. Set a goal of what you want to accomplish and stick with it until you reach the goal! It's a great feeling inside to accomplish a goal!
