Good morning friends,
Good luck to our 3rd and 5th grade friends as they take the Reading MCAs today. I know you will put forth your best efforts to show the world what you know. Concentrate, take your time, and be a thinker. You got this!
We understand this time of year can feel overwhelming because we are asking students to show what they know in a lot of different ways. To help you deal with the stress that this may bring, I want you to picture a giant pause button that will let you stop and take a few moments to breathe. Think about “pushing the pause button," and finding a few moments each day for peace and calm and re-energize for your important work.
Some ways that you can “push pause” and relax may be to listen to music, draw a picture, read a book, or get some exercise. Don’t forget about the Self-Management Skill of maintaining a healthy lifestyle: I can respect my body and mind. I make sure that I have a balanced lifestyle and diet.
What are some ways that you can “push pause”?
