Growth Mindset Activities and Lessons
Are you ready to start fostering a growth mindset culture with your elementary students and unsure where to start? This resource is designed with explicit, research based lessons, activities, anchor charts, and an interactive bulletin board to help your students distinguish between growth and fixed mindsets, how the brain learns, goal setting, and much more!
When students believe that dedication and hard work can change their performance in school, they grow to become resilient, successful students. Even at such a young age, it is essential for us to teach our students that their intelligence can be grown or developed with persistence, effort, and a focus on learning.
This resource includes easy to implement explicit lesson plans, research based, hands on learning activities, and differentiated student response printables, notes for the teacher, (informative mindset education) as well as an editable letter to involve and educate families about the growth mindset culture you will establish with your students.
For each of the lessons you will get an explicit lesson plan with suggestions on how to make it applicable to any K-5 classroom. Also included are all anchor chart posters needed, linked video and mentor texts suggestions, several student response activity printables to reinforce the lesson’s objective, pre/post mindset self evaluation and so much more! This resource really has everything you need to explicitly teach such an important topic to promote student success!
