: This "Pattern Picture" pack is perfect to use any time you are helping your students focus on growth mindset. The banner pieces have a cute themed image of a light bulb man with a brain, and he is standing next to a can that says, "i can". Once colored they will add pizzazz to any classroom!
If you are not familiar with the concept of having a growth mindset, simply do a google search for growth mindset or even look on TpT for ways to introduce it. This pack is a fun addition to your other activities. It is a way to reinforce the concept or to help your students think about about adopting this type of thinking.
So, what's the difference?
A fixed mindset is one where people think intelligence is static. People think they are the way they are. They avoid obstacles and challenges when they are presented. They don't see effort as a contributing factor to success and they don't want to work hard. They are often threatened by the success of others.
A growth mindset is where people think intelligence can be developed. They see effort as path to success. They overcome challenges. They work hard and see good in criticisms. As a result, they reach higher levels of achievement.
In this pack there are 17 different "Growth Mindset" sayings. See the list below.
What are Pattern Pictures?
They are fun themed pictures with patterns behind the image. When students color the patterns in a variety of different colors, the finished product is whimsical and fun. They can then color the main image that sits in front of the patterns. These are sure to add colorful pizzazz to your classroom. For the most pep from your pictures, tell your students to use lots of different colors and try not to have two of the same colors touching.
This pack includes a "Pattern Picture" coloring sheet for Growth Mindset, a pennant, writing paper formatted to be glued to the coloring sheet or the pennant (The extra-long banner option is neat!). Once you have discussed the difference between growth mindset and a fixed mindset, you can possibly use the paper to have students reflect on their own mindset or to write about changes they will make,etc.
Ways to Use:
during indoor recess for a coloring sheet, morning work coloring to introduce Growth Mindset activities that you will be learning about later in the day, to decorate your classroom or hallway display on this topic, so much more. These are perfect to hang in the classroom and leave up for students to continue to reflect upon.
