A large variety of activities for students to process and practice the virtue of perseverance. It can be used at any time (nothing is specific to a season/holiday.)
See the preview!
Included in the pack:
Perseverance T-chart (large and small) – Use the large icons to make a t-chart on poster paper. Use the single sheet copy for personal, small group t-charts or to put on the wall. List what perseverance “looks like” (what would you see someone doing?) and “sounds like”
Perseverance Poster – A poster that describes perseverance. Can be read aloud as a class.
Quotes – 5 quotes that speak to what perseverance is. These lead to great discussions about perseverance and how to show it.
Quote processing page – a ½ sheet for students to process what a quote means.
Video/Stories – (example/answer key included) There is 1 video and 2 storybook processing pages. The processing page helps them think about what the story says about perseverance. Please make sure you view them prior to the students to ensure they are appropriate for your class. A book list of other great read alouds connected to perseverance is also included.
Perseverance Role Play – 12 situations that commonly happen (plenty of roles for the entire class) Students can act these out to practice using language that supports perseverance.
Perseverance Pyramid – Students will prewrite a goal they have and 6 steps needed to reach that goal. Then, they will write the steps on a pyramid and the goal on a star to go on the top. You can use the enclosed pyramid, or use different colors of construction paper strips.
Perseverance Debates – 10 discussion starters about perseverance – great for Morning Meeting! After discussing, the students can fill out the processing page with a partner.
Perseverance Poster Project – Students will work to prewrite and create a poster to encourage others to persevere to reach their goals – work on creating simple quotes/slogans with bright, bold words to catch people’s attention.
Perseverance Word Wall – Common words used when talking about perseverance. Students can use for speaking and writing.
