Ish is written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds.
Growth Mindset is a positive way of thinking. When a student laments, "I just can't do that" or "I am bad at Math!," it is healthy to say to them, "Well, you just can't do that...yet, but with hard work and practice I know you can learn to work out those Math equations." This mindset applauds the process of hard work and grit more than just saying, "you are so smart!" of just, "Good job!"
I just learned how to add fonts to the file. Very excited! :) I have included the fonts to make this editable if you want to edit it for any reason! You shouldn't need to, but having the customization option is nice.
This packet includes:
