Product Description
Enjoy a fruitful year with a growth mindset approach!


"This isn't working. What can I try next?"
"This feeling of reading being hard is really my brain growing!"
"I know how to work through my frustration."

Teachers, we show our students how to have a growth mindset with our words and actions, but this unit will help you clearly teach what it is, what it looks like, and what it sounds like. The five lessons are titled:

1) What is fixed mindset vs. growth mindset?
2) I can work through frustrations and do hard things!
3) I can use humor to move past frustration and my failures.
4) I can help others have a growth mindset.
5) I recognize and celebrate my own strides in a growth mindset.

There is a variety of activities for students to process this way of thinking: a survey, multiple reflection pages, a readers' theater, conversation cards, and more.

Bright posters with quotes that align with growth mindedness are also included. These are to be used with direct instruction and then in display.

When we clearly teach growth mindset and when we act on what we teach, our learners will be successful despite setbacks and will thrive in becoming lifelong learners!

To be brief, this download includes:
- Five detailed lesson plans geared towards 3rd-5th graders
- A mindset survey for students to evaluate their initial thinking
- Fixed Mindset, Growth Mindset, and T chart posters
- Seven growth mindset quote posters
- Two brainstorming or reflection printables (with teacher key for ideas/help in how to complete them)
- A Readers' Theater
- Conversation Cards and written response page
- A final reflection page and drawing task
- Two motivational posters for you and your teacher desk

The unit requires two picture books for reading aloud: The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires and 11 Experiments that Failed by Jenny Offill and Nancy Carpenter. I was able to find both of these at my library, so I am hopeful this will not be a setback.

I am really excited about this unit, and I hope you and your students find it to be meaningful and inspiring as you begin your new year!
