The fabulous Growth Mindset theory is applied to Speech Therapy in this teaching story, activity and tiered worksheets for elementary students.
You will receive an 11 page color with white space teaching story that features a boy who is frustrated and wants to give up on improving his speech in speech therapy. His friend encourages him and coaches him on growth mindset and helps him turn his "fixed" thoughts (I can't do it) and statements into "growth" (this will take some effort) mindset thoughts and statements. A great introduction to growth mindset and a nice way to teach that progress in speech therapy requires effort! A great story and activities for your students that lack effort or perseverance in speech therapy.
You will also receive a growth mindset "In this speech room, we practice..." poster, a general poster of growth mindset talk and a growth mindset poster for speech therapy.
You will also receive 2 (fixed or growth?) sorting mats and 2 sets of sentences (one text only and one with pictures) for sorting.
The following black and white tiered worksheets are also included:
"What makes my brain grow?" 2 sheets,
"From never to not yet" matching activity and answer key,
"From never to not yet" change the sentences from fixed to growth, and answer key,
3 tiered pages of growth mindset flip flaps.
A page of links to growth mindset information is also provided in case you want to beef up your knowledge on this topic!
