Change Your Mindset Grades 5+
Research has shown that students are more likely to succeed once they take on a growth mindset and understand that they can get better at anything with time and effort. Students with growth mindsets see mistakes as learning opportunities, welcome challenges, and persevere with effort.
Teaching about growth mindset and the science behind it has helped countless students to grasp the idea that they can achieve their goals, no matter their starting points. The individual, small-group, and whole-class activities in this series support the growth-mindset philosophy. These activities along with the inspirational reading passages encourage students to adopt this flexible, supportive, and uplifting perspective. 80 pages.
A growth mindset has to do with stretching yourself out of what is comfortable to achieve new things. You learn to set goals and create a path to reach it. While this is a grand goal for a workbook series, the daily positivity and creative exercises contributes to a student learning to push themselves in a healthy, inspiring way. You will read biographical pages of famous people kids can see have achieved something and learn how that person got to that point. Some of the people highlighted include Bindi Irwin, Michael Jordan, Grace Lin, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Downey, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Think of these activities as a way to start a conversation with your student, learn their aspirations and reasons behind them. Pages are reproducible for a single classroom/family. ~Sara
