This is a growth mindset lesson about goal setting for students in elementary school. This lesson uses the book "Rose's Garden" by Peter H. Reynolds. You must own, purchase, or borrow this book to complete this lesson.
This is a wonderful book which was inspired by and dedicated to Rose Kennedy. The garden she creates is a wonderful platform to teach students about having a growth mindset. I teach this lesson to students in grades Kindergarten through 5. I adjust the depth of questioning to fit each particular class, but the template stays mainly the same.
Included in this growth mindset lesson about goal setting are; a guide for the read-aloud, discussion questions to use after finishing the book, and directions and two different printables for a follow-up class goal setting/art project which will make a wonderful "goal garden" for your classroom. Some students may need assistance to write their goals as well.
