Each month we will discuss a life skill with all of our students. This month the word is Perseverance. This word will be defined in the following ways for our students.
Young students: Perseverance means: When the work gets tough, I don’t give up!
Older students: Perseverance means: Steady, goal-oriented persistence, despite challenges or obstacles.
Each age group has a worksheet that parents can use to continue the discussion at home with their children, and one for adults to allow them to think more deeply about the skill and how it applies to them. Would you like to receive the worksheet? Stop by our studio at 133 Gibralter Avenue in Annapolis, MD and tell us the age of your child. We will give you a worksheet and invite you to watch Mr. Joe discuss the word with the students in class. You can also follow our discussions here on this website.
