Beginning of the Year Lesson: Introduction to Growth Mindset using The Legend of Rock Paper and Scissors.
I’ll be honest, this is an unconventional book to teach growth mindset. The text is about Rock, Paper, and Scissors, 3 champions at the top of their game. With this book however, we focus on the idea “never stop trying”. That “when you think you’re done, you have only just begun!” I want my kids to know early on that they should never stop challenging themselves. It’s also a downright hilarious book.
