These growth mindset posters and cards are perfect for getting your students in a ready-to-learn mindset as the students transition out of summer and back to school! Hang these posters in your room, use them as coloring pages (for early finishers, room decor) or use the smaller card versions for students to make and keep for themselves (on their desks/ notebooks for encouragement, etc).
This sample pack is part of the Growth Mindset bundle (24 quotes total - available in poster size AND smaller card size, color and b&w!) This sample freebie includes the following two phrases, in both poster and smaller card size:
I can’t do it…yet! (**this one is my personal favorite phrase!)
I can improve if I keep trying
What is a growth mindset, exactly? It means that you believe your skills and abilities will continue to improve with work, practice and perseverance. This will help your students face tough challenges, bounce back from setbacks, and be open to learning. Compare this to a fixed mindset, which means you believe your skills/ abilities are something you are born with - you either have them or you don’t.
Fixed mindset: “I’m not good at math. I can’t do this. I’ll never get it.”
Growth mindset alternative: “I don’t understand this yet. If I keep trying, I will get it.”
As a social worker in two elementary schools, I am always working with my students to develop a growth mindset to help them be open and motivated to learn. I LOVE getting to create these designs for you - and hope you and your students love them, too!
Thanks and love!
