School Wide Character Trait: Mindset
Our character trait for the month of May is Growth Mindset. Having a growth mindset: Loves a challenge and sees failures as a way to grow, learn and stretch out abilities. A fixed mindset: avoids a challenge and assumes that character, intelligence and creative ability are unchangeable. Thanks to the neurplacity of our brains, we can change our mindset. Here is a helpful article from The Greater Good called, Three Mindsets that can Help Students Succeed. I also really enjoy The Big Life Journal and Podcast for helping kids with their growth mindset! Last but not least, my favorite book right now for reading to k-5 students is, After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again by Dan Santat.
