Your student is participating in classroom activities helping them learn what is perseverance and how to practice that. We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home!

Definition: Perseverance means the ability to get through difficult tasks without giving up. It means to keep working on your plan to achieve a goal, even though it may be taking longer than you had wanted it to.

Here a just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:
