I’m excited to help you motivate your students to believe in themselves and increase achievement with growth mindset lessons and activities
Carol Dweck’s mindset work validates everything I have always believed but didn’t know how to articulate to my students. Once I started studying her work, I became so passionate and started tapping into the power and building a growth mindset culture in my classroom. Soon I helped my students understand that everyone can learn, that intelligence can be developed with appropriate instruction, time, persistence, and motivation. Instantly, I saw student’s performance and achievement increase. This sparked my desire to know even more.
Over the past few weeks, I have spent countless hours reading, watching videos, and writing lessons specifically designed for elementary classrooms. For each lesson I have included objectives, materials needed, step by step teaching plans, and activities. Then for each lesson I have differentiated the levels of activities so you may choose what will best work with the level of your students.
Here is a closer look:
Research shows it is crucial to involve and educate families about the growth mindset culture you will establish with your students. They need to hear consistent messages at home. To help you with that, I have included an editable letter to send home with your students.
This work is so important to build a culture of success and student achievement in our schools. I feel so lucky that my school has embraced the Mindset culture and there are visuals throughout our building to reinforce their thinking.

Recently, I made this bulletin board after seeing a similar idea on Pinterest.
If you’ve been toying with the idea of introducing the topic of growth mindset to your students or looking for more ways to incorporate it, I hope my resources will motivate you to give it a go. So while I know your days are filled with to-dos, I can promise you this topic is one of such great value. If you can help your students establish a growth mindset you will have given them a gift that will serve them for years to come!
I’d love to hear from you! If you have you already started incorporating growth mindset into your classroom community, what improvements have you seen with your students? Have parents been receptive to the culture? I’m eager to hear your thoughts and observations!
