This resource also includes the perfect amount of back to school activities for a seamless start to the year. The bundle includes everything you need to master growth mindset with students!

**As of June 22, 2020, there is a DIGITAL version of the Growth Mindset Portfolio AND Growth Journal included in this resource. It is compatible with Google Slides + Google Classroom for distance learning.

Below are descriptions of all resources included in the bundle:


This interactive bulletin board is designed to allow students to display their growth mindset moments. A “mindset moment” is an experience someone has in which he or she uses growth mindset to overcome obstacles–leading to success!

For example : Even though Kate had previously failed her Algebra II tests, she passed her final exam because she put forth extra effort. She went to tutoring 3 days a week after school and designed flash cards to help her remember important formulas.

These moments deserve to be celebrated! With this bulletin board, students can do just that! They can tell their peers about their mindset moment & why they deserve the success.

This product includes:

✏ "Mindset Moments" letters in color

✏ "Mindset Moment" student completion worksheet

✏ 15 different center options in blue, green, and pink

✏ 4 center options without glitter available

Growth Mindset Bulletin Board: Interactive


This bulletin board is interactive and its purpose is to encourage students to spread growth mindset, encouraging quotes amongst each other. I’ve provided the initial 36 quotes as well as blank templates. When a student takes a quote, he or she gets to keep that quote, reflect on it and apply it to their life. Here’s the interactive part: if they take a quote, they must replace the quote with their OWN quote. By the end of the semester, students will be exchanging constant words of motivation.

Students will be helping each other develop a growth mindset! With this bulletin board, students can help their peers by writing encouraging words and collaborating with their classmates.

This product includes:

✏ "Growth Mindset" letters in color

✏ 6 pockets labeled: motivation, confidence, failure, perseverance, effort, and attitude

✏ 36 quotes in task card format (6 per pocket) and blank templates for students

✏ A variety of unique graphics to decorate your bulletin board

✏ Directions for students and teacher
