These posters may be laminated and used in the classroom guidance, small group or individual counseling setting to teach school-aged children the difference between fixed and growth mindset statements. Included are both fixed and growth mindset statements. They may be used in conjunction with any lessons in mindset, teaching affirmations and positive self-talk. For example, after students learn about perseverance and mindset, I would hold up a fixed or growth mindset statement and ask students if it's a fixed or growth mindset statement. If it's a fixed statement like "I give up", I might ask them what statement they could replace it with.
