These growth mindset soft start activities for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade include everything you need for a morning meeting or daily warm-up activity during the month of September.

You will find:

  • a printable version
  • a Google slides version (minus the crafts as they can't be completed in Google slides)
  • a PowerPoint version (not editable)

You may choose to use the PPT version as a starting point for a morning meeting discussion or you may choose to use the printable worksheets as a bell ringer or warm-up activity. There is also an option in Google (minus the crafts or activities that are not suited for a digital option). You may also choose to use a combination of these choices based on the time you have or the needs of your students.

This file was created for the month of September.

It includes the following topics:

  • Week 1: Perseverance
  • Week 2: Grit
  • Week 3: Mistakes
  • Week 4: Self-Reflection

These activities are the PERFECT way to begin your day on a positive and empowering note for students, AND they include foundational growth mindset concepts that will impact your students for a lifetime.
