Do you teach and foster growth mindset with your students? If so, here is a MEANINGFUL and AFFIRMING activity to use at the START and the END of the school year to reinforce growth mindset! It’s a great way to “set the tone” for a positive new school year and to “wrap up” what has been taught and practiced throughout a school year that is coming to a close! These cards are intended for students in 5th grade and up.
There are 24 I Have/Who Has style cards.Unlike other I Have/Who Has games, these cards to do not follow a question/answer format. Rather, the cards are to be read in order and each one features a growth mindset themed statement. Students will take turns reading their cards aloud, speaking the growth mindset themed statements on each card to one another, and listening.
There are also two different writing worksheets for use at the start and the end of the school year. After completing the growth mindset I Have/Who Has cards, have students complete the writing activities! The finished writing products would be ideal for a bulletin board display at the start or end of the school year (3 mini-posters included!).
START OF SCHOOL YEAR: The cards can be used at the start of a school year as part of your introduction to, or reinforcement of, growth mindset concepts!
END OF SCHOOL YEAR: Looking for a meaningful and special way to send off your students on the last day of school? Have students form a big circle and pass out the cards. Have students read the cards one time exactly as written. Then, the second time around, have the students read only the growth mindset statements on their cards (easy to distinguish – they are written in color). As your students read aloud the growth mindset statements one after another while standing together in a circle, they will be given an AFFIRMING, POWERFUL, and ENCOURAGING memory to take with them into the summer…and into the next school year!
