This post is written for my 4th grade students that I meet with each week. We talk math, we talk leadership, and this week, we again, talked GRIT!
Accepting that “experts” are made and not born has two results, one very sobering and the other liberating:
- It means that we are all responsible for our own levels of achievement – which can be scary!
- But at the same time it’s liberating, because it means that we also have the power to change it! We have the power to change our world!
You were also supposed to write down as many uses as you can think of for the following two items.
1. a brick
2. a blanket
Now, I want you to list them here on the blog so that I can see what you listed.
Do you have any thoughts about the chapter Mrs. White read to you from “Multipliers”? We’ll discuss it even more next week because I want to hear what you think! Thanks, gang! Thank you for being well behaved with Mrs. White today!
