We took notes during the chat for great memories!
Since Lex life had such true examples of perseverance in his own life, we had many discussions about him, how even though some things are harder, he never gives up. We watched videos of him doing all these amazing things we would never dream someone without sight could do. We generated a chart of great words related to perseverance and decided to make acrostics to share in the hallway to inspire others.
We are working in journals to talk about times we have each struggled and come up against something difficult, but kept trying and readjusting until we persevered! One of the kids brought up the United States Post Office motto and since none of us could remember it exactly, we looked it up and decided to change it a bit to fit 4th graders who will never give up! SUCH a great idea! Read at the bottom to see our final version.
No bullies, nor distractions, nor fears, nor failures of life will stop these 4th graders from the completion of their dreams and goals! We can do it and you can do it too!We were so happy to receive an amazing boxes of surprised from +Classroom Champions! I wish I had recorded all the oohhhs and aaahhss when I pulled all of these gifts from the box. What a great present for us all! Thank you Classroom Champions! We will use and wear our items with pride and be reminded often of how lucky we are to be part of such a great program! Check out our goodies here!
