What is courage?

Courage is to be brave and dare to be nice even when it's hard.


We all have courage inside of us. Be brave even when it's hard. Use positive self talk when you are afraid, say:

 
I can do this. I got this. I have courage to face my fears.

“All our dreams can come true…if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney


"Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared.” – Edward Vernon Rickenbacker

Word of the Month for April:
PATIENCE!
See the source image
What is Patience?

Patience is to be calm and understand that some things take time and endurance.

Examples of Patience: 
Johnny wants to play on the PlayStation, but his little brother is playing. Johnny waits for his brother to finish playing. 

We are waiting for things to get back to normal.  When we are calm and doing other things with our time we are showing patience.

You are doing a great job of being patient.  Remember to stay busy by reading, practicing math facts, journal writing, exercising and doing other fun projects.

        King Lions Lets Grow our Brains! Let's have a Growth Mindset!                                        

 What's a growth mindset?


A growth mindset is the belief that the brain can grow and change.  You can become more intelligent by taking on challenges.

People with a growth mindset may say things like: 

"I don't understand this yet but I will keep trying."  

"I'm getting smarter at this."

What's a fixed mindset?

The belief that intelligence cannot be changed.  You are born intelligent or not intelligent.

People with a fixed mindset often says, "I can't."  or "I give up."

Parents: Help us encourage your child(ren) to have a GROWTH Mindset!!!
