Please watch the Zion Harvey video at this link.  
It is very powerful and moving. We discovered our last stance for this week is empathy. EMPATHY is when you put yourself in someone’s shoes and try to understand how they feel. Share with us your thoughts about Zion. How are you empathetic toward him? How does his story make you feel? I look forward to reading your comments about this amazing boy and his story. Please write 4 to 5 complete sentences that make sense. Make sure you use capitals and periods.

 This week we read The Book of Mistakes and discovered that the main character/artist was very FLEXIBLE!  
Flexibility is seeing and trying many possible actions within a task, and being open, or when one thing doesn't work you try a different way. When you are flexible, you may have to "change the plan" in an instant! The main character/artist  showed us flexibility when her mistakes become part of the picture. The artist's mistakes help change the pictures in important ways, make the picture better, and make the story more interesting. She was willing to try different ways of drawing with her mistakes. 

Please share specific examples of when you have been flexible.  Write 4 to 5 sentence and be sure to check for capitalization and punctuation.
