Learning Objective

Students will learn how to put a growth mindset into practical day-to-day use and memorization.

Description

Growth Mindset distance learning - this is the perfect time for instilling a growth mindset in your students, bot in class and for distance learning. It's a tough time, and having a growth mindset will really help your students keep their spirits high!

We've developed fun growth mindset activities that are perfect for older kids especially. These ELA activities were designed for middle school and is packed full of growth mindset word scrambles, growth mindset reflection writing activities - plus bonus coloring posters and a lovely prize!

These ELA activities are a "deep dive" into four carefully chosen quotes by people middle school students are familiar with. In this way, kids can immediately "plug in" to a real-life example of a growth mindset in action.

Each quote is an ideal length for meaning and memorization -- not too short, not too long.

Here's the fun ELA activities included:

  • a word scramble puzzle worksheet to warm up and learn the quote;
  • a Reflect and Write writing prompt worksheet that includes the unscrambled quote, a biographical statement that helps the student understand the life path of the individual, and questions to help the students relate the quote to their own lives (meets Common Core Standards W.6.1, W.6.2, W.6.3, W.7.1, W.7.2, W.7.3, W.8.1, W.8.2, W.8.3);
  • a growth mindset coloring poster in black and white, again exposing students to the quote in a different way;
  • and a prize to take with them: an easy-to-fold origami bookmark (which gives them more exposure to the quote)!

Real People Bring Depth of Meaning and Purpose

Your students will get to explore quotes and biographical sketches from a diverse group of people who have surmounted hard challenges in their own lives. The biographical sketches tie into the quote, so students can immediately understand how the individual used a growth mindset in their own lives for success. It makes the quote REAL and credible. Further, we've tied each quote to a growth mindset vocabulary word for even more depth of understanding, including:

  • The Persistence of Dr. King
  • Taking Action with John F. Kennedy
  • J.K. Rowling on Learning from Failure
  • Pele Perseveres

It's flexible and comprehensive: you can split up the activity and even use it for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents' Day, Black History Month and Women's History Month.
