July POWerful Word – DETERMINATION – Week 4
When we are determined and practice, there are good “consequences.” What do I mean by “good consequences?” Consequences are the results of your actions. If you work hard and stay determined, typically good things will happen. Tell us what do you think would happen if our friends were really determined and worked hard on these goals: (1) Emma wanted to learn how to read out loud in a clear way. She often stumbled over her words. She practiced each day for at least 1/2 hour for a month. When her teacher called on her to read in class what do you think happened? (2) Sam wanted to learn a skill we teach here in class. Sam struggled but was determined– s/he worked hard for 2 months and then showed the skill to the teacher. What do you think happened? When we stay determined and work hard, we can achieve our goals!
