What is an “I Did It!” Moment?
Learning is a journey, so progress is something to celebrate! An “I Did It!” Moment is a little (and sometimes big) win on the way to lifelong learning. They happen when something “clicks,” and your child can take what they’re learning and make it their own. They’re the big-smile-inducing, fist-pumping, dance-party-sparking, “we finally got there” moments that lead to a lifelong love of learning.
They give kids the confidence to ask questions, find solutions, and create their own path in the world. Kids can celebrate big moments—like counting to 100 or reading a book—and the little wins that help them get there.
