Nurturing a “growth mindset” in our students is not probably not new to you.
You also know that teaching about growth mindset is a critical part of our jobs. These growth mindset lessons and activities can help you do just that as you focus on social-emotional learning and building that classroom culture we all want.

Teaching students about a growth mindset can make a huge difference in all areas of schooling and this set of lessons, posters, and activities can make it easy! Students who believe they can learn, who recognize that hard work pays off, and that minor setbacks lead to more growth actually can rewire their brains!

This resource is intended to give you some tools to get these discussions going as you work to help students become more growth-oriented learners. Investing time learning about perseverance and “grit”, goal setting, and helping students become reflective, flexible learners will pay off many times over. What do you get? Read on!


1. Headers and copies of several different activities that can then be displayed on bulletin board to use almost like anchor charts throughout the year.

*Sorting growth mindset vs fixed mindset phrases

*Cards that show “What I can do” as a learner—color version to display, black and white versions to use on anchor charts, and mini versions to use as writing prompts.

*”I used to say” and “Now I say” bulletin board activity which helps students recognize productive self-talk as opposed to the kind of language that results from a fixed mindset.

2. Several growth mindset surveys and goal setting sheets and suggestions for use.

3. Drawing/writing pages for students to reflect on their own experiences.

4. “talking points” cards to help your morning meetings, partner sharing, or even journal writing.

5. "headers" to print and glue to chart paper as professional-looking, ready to use anchor charts!

6. Coloring posters for students to decorate with key growth mindset phrases. Hang them all around your classroom and school to celebrate!

"This is a fantastic addition to my Growth Mindset Bulletin Board. This encourages the students to believe that they can do things they may have once believed they were unable to do. Great discussion starters. Change one mindset at a time! Thank you for a very thoughtful and thorough product. The students are now encouraging each other!"
