Sharing GRIT Paper With Partner

Recently, our children wrote about a time they had GRIT (generating relentless inner toughness). This was our first “write time.” They were to pay attention more to quantity over quality this time.

After that, partners shared their papers with one another. They told their partner one thing they liked about the paper. I loved all the compliments I heard.

I’m super proud of our writers!

Enjoy a sneak peek into our conferring!
