A Rewarding Experience

A Rewarding Experience
Posted on 12/19/2016

Learning how to ice skate can be a rewarding experience! First grade students in Mr. O'Connor's first grade had a wonderful morning at the Simoni Rink.

Although some students were hesitant at first, many found confidence by the end of the session. Fun Skate is run by Cambridge Human Services Programs Recreation Division Coordinator, Bob Goodwin. He teaches students from schools around Cambridge how to skate. He starts by teaching them how to get up when they fall. Once they get over their fear of falling, sheer persistence is what gets them all skating. When they are ice skating, they are engaging their bodies and improving their minds. It is truly representative of growth mindset, understanding that they are improving constantly, even though they may still fall.
