Growth mindset is one of the most important things I teach my scholars each year. I begin the year with a week of growth mindset lessons and activities to help give them the language and concepts they will need to be successful students.
Included in this resource are 5 growth mindset lessons based on 4 growth mindset picture books I use in my classroom: The Most Magnificent Thing, What Do You Do With a Problem, The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes, and Flight School. Each daily lesson includes a short video (link is in lesson plan), a read aloud, discussion cards with questions for each one, and activity pages for students to complete.
NOTE: I have linked a youtube read aloud of each picture book so that you are able to utilize these lessons without having the book in hand.
Activity pages include:
KWL Brain chart
K-5th Grade Bucket List
STEM Challenge planning page
Growth vs. Fixed Mindset sort
Goal Setting Action Plan
Mistakes Help Me Learn page
