Persistence | Daniel Tiger: Life's Little Lessons

An important part of being persistent is learning from mistakes. When trying is not enough and things don’t turn out in the way they’d hoped, we can encourage children to look more closely to see what they could do better. Who can help? Where might they find some answers? With that help, they can try again.

In this set of resources, we will use video and a song from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood to focus on how you can help children learn that being persistent is worthwhile; and when we keep on trying we are more likely to succeed. When we don't succeed, we can learn from our mistakes.

Watch the videos about Persistence and think about how you could use them as part of the classroom activity or throughout the year whenever children need help or inspiration to keep on trying.

Explore the topic of Persistence in your classroom using the Teacher Tips and Classroom Activity.

Share the Family Activity document with the families of your students, so they can continue the conversation at home.
