This growth mindset literature unit for Jabari Jumps by Gaia Cornwall is perfect for 2nd-4th grade. This new picture book works perfectly in conjunction with any growth mindset curriculum. The activities in the literature companion focus more on the concepts presented in the story and less on the content (although there are comprehension questions included in list form as well as task card form).
In addition to 6 vocabulary cards, 14 discussion question task cards, and various printables, you will also find a variety of tasks where students can reflect on setting goals, taking risks, and facing fears.
You will also find several pages of information and anchor charts related to figurative language (idioms, similes, and metaphors).
Please check out the preview for Jabari Jumps prior to purchasing and let me know if you have any questions!
These activities are perfect for teachers or counselors who are helping students develop a growth mindset and understand that it's normal to have fears and anxieties. Please let me know if you have questions prior to purchasing this literature unit.
