Do you have a growth mindset? Do you teach your students about what growth mindset is and how to have one? Over the last 4 years, my school has made a shift to this way of thinking, growing our brains and teaching! Teaching students to have grit and perseverance are traits that will hopefully stay with them for the rest of their academic careers and into adulthood. 3 summers ago, Greg (Kindergarten Smorgasboard) and I did a summer book study on the book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck . The book study was wildly popular and still one of my most read posts and series! With so many teachers, administration, and districts embracing growth mindset I have put together a round up some resources that you might be interested in, when teaching growth mindset in your class! This round up includes teaching tools, activities, anchor charts, bulletin boards, and books!!! But to make this Growth Mindset post even more exciting, I am doing a giveaway!!
Last summer I designed a shirt with The Wright Stuff Chics and it has finally been released this summer!! As a kindergarten teacher, I am always telling my students that mistakes are a part of learning and practice makes progress. So it was only fitting that my shirt would say, Mistakes Happen #growthmindset.
I believe in celebrating mistakes so much, that I have these huge letters as a focus in my room, to let my students know that mistakes happen, but they help us learn and grow! Scroll down for the GIVEAWAY!!!
