This month we are talking to students about having a growth mindset. A growth mindset is a belief that intelligence can increase through study and practice. People with a growth mindset tend to see challenges as opportunities to grow! An easy way to promote a growth mindset is to use the word “yet”. The word “yet” indicates that things can be learned. “ I can’t do this…yet.”
Mrs. Ross will read “The Little Engine That Could” by Watty Piper to the kindergarten classes, “The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes” by Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein to grades one and two, and “The Oldest Student” by Rita Lorraine Hubbard and Oge Mora to 4th and 5th grade.
