Back to school Growth Mindset activities! Do you want to foster a growth mindset with your students at the beginning of the year? These goal banners are designed as a way to foster a growth mindset culture in your classroom. Students will learn about a fixed vs. growth mindset, write and/or draw their goals and decorate the banners. You string them up and hang them around the classroom with the banner posters provided. They serve as a great reminder for students, too!

Read the included growth mindset book (in English and Spanish) to teach your students positive ways to think about their learning and change their self talk. When students learn that hard work and a positive, can-do attitude positively affects their achievement, they become successful students. Isn't that what we all want?

This pack is printable and digital. There is a file for the printable version and a file with the links to the English Google Slides and the Spanish Google Slides for distance learning.

Additional items: bulletin board lettering for "Change your Words, Change your Mindset", decorative growth mindset banners {in English and Spanish}, and a student run bulletin board where they document when they demonstrated a growth mindset.

There are SEVEN different banners to allow for differentiation. Banner three has a kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth grade and blank version. There are 11 decorative color banners for you to print and place at the ends of your banner or create a motivational bulletin board.


You can even have students make 1 or more banners - for each subject area, or one each marking period!
