    Mindfulness Quotes/Montra: PERSEVERANCE

    Week of April 6th

    Quote: “Mistakes are proof that you are trying.”

    Mantra:  I can keep trying.

    Week 2 of E-Learning. Continue working on research skills and learning how to use the library’s online resources. I have attached a PebbleGo BINGO card on the E-Learning Activities page. This is for ALL grades. Focus on how to use PebbleGo. Use keywords to search for the information you want.

    Grades 4 and 5: Continue to check Google Classroom for all your work. Notice that I have extended due dates. Our goal now is to get familiar and comfortable with how to E-Learn.

    More reading options:
