Where have I been?

Hello! It's been a few months since I've been on here. Sometimes life just carries me away and I don't realize so many days have passed without blogging. I swear I had good intentions! I have lots of photos of things on my phone to blog about! 

Today I find myself awake early, all my marking is complete, and I don't feel like cleaning the house yet. So I've been updating a few things on TpT and thought I'd better make my way over here too.

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. 

That's all for today!  I promise there will be more sharing soon!
