We reflected in class this week on what we learned at tournament. We discussed patience, fairness and the importance of practice. It was summed up perfectly by a five year old who was at his second competition.
He had been disappointed not to earn a trophy his first time. He worked hard on his focus. He practiced in class and at home which helped build his confidence. He explained to our class about winning the trophy, “It was Perseverance – You just keep trying! Look at me – first I didn’t win but now I have a trophy.”
