SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT AT HOME:
 
I talked to the kids today about having GRIT!!! With the Writing STAAR test around the corner on APRIL 10th, I wanted to talk to my classes about every minute counting everyday. This has been a phrase I use often all year long, but I'm trying to instill the idea of internal drive that we need to keep pushing forward towards our goals. So the only word I could think of is GRIT...
 
G-Give it your all
R-Redo if necessary
I-Ignore giving up
T-Take time to do it right. 
 
How can you support this goal at home? How can you emphasize showing GRIT?
