Use an A4 piece of paper.
Include the title of the story – What a good man does is always right.
WRITING – Write your highs and lows for this week
Today you are going to write down the highs and lows for the week. At a time like this, it is good to think about the things we are grateful for. It is also a time to recognise things that are hard.
Complete the task by following these steps.
1. Write down 3 things you are grateful for. Make sure you use full sentences to explain your thinking
a) NZ cricket captain Kane Williamson has written a cool letter to those health workers – this might be good to read to get some examples. CLICK HERE
2. Write down 3 things that have been lows this week.
a) They might be things you have found hard etc.
If you think you might need to talk to someone about your lows we encourage you to do so – this might be parents, extended family, or teacher or a friend. Remember you can call people on the phone.
