Wordless Wednesday

Is everyone enjoying their summer?  I know I am!  

I'm taking a break from all the book reading I've been doing to link up with Mrs. DeCarbo for Wordless Wednesday.

 

One of my classroom/professional goals for this upcoming year is to instill a growth mindset in my students and make sure they all know how and why their brains work.  One of my teaching tools for this is picture books throughout the year.

A favourite book I use is "Your Fantastic, Elastic Brain" by JoAnne Deak.

 
What are some books you use for teaching about the brain and a growth mindset?

  1. Thanks for telling me about this book which is new to me. I have several about brains as we talk about our brains and how we learn a lot. I'll check this one out, too. See you around. Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom

  3. I'll have to find and order that one on Amazon. I just got The Most Magnificent Thing. I think that book could be used for growth mindset too.

    1. I have "The Most Magnificent Thing" also. I think it's a bit young for grade 4 - but would be perfect for 1 or 2!

  4. Looks like an interesting read! I was a psych major in undergrad, so brain stuff is exciting to me! I'll have to check this out.
