A Fun Activity To Teach Positive Mindset


In this post, back in January, I mentioned working on a Growth Mindset project with some colleagues.  I created a bulletin board to help our 3 classes keep the growth mindset at the forefront whenever they walked by.  On the left, are fixed mindset sayings such as "I can't" and "This is too hard!". 


On the right, there are growth mindset sayings like "I'll have this thing done soon" and my favourite, "Just keep swimming".  My class wrote in red for fixed, or green for growth, but the older kids are part of the wireless writing project and all typed their out.  I like that these statements came from them and are therefore likely things they have thought.  I have noticed a great change in my students after this series of lessons.  They are more encouraging to one another.
