perseverance anchor chart (2)Perseverance: to do your best to meet a goal even if it is a big challenge.

When working through a difficult task, we all experience a wide range of emotions. We might be excited about making progress, frustrated about a setback, or exhausted over the amount of time or effort we've invested. "Never Give Up" is a phrase that comes to mind - to help pull through.

Students are challenged to persevere each day in our classrooms and their everyday lives - as they learn about finding their roles in this great big world. 

In the sixth of a 10-lesson unit on Social-Emotional Learning designed for elementary-aged students and developed in partnership with The Curriculum Corner, students will explore Perseverance. Through a series of group discussions, self-reflection activities, and literary analysis, students will increase their social-emotional awareness of perseverance and how they can make it a bigger part of their lives.
