This growth mindset lesson is about setting long term life goals. It is never too early to help our student to think about their futures. This lesson uses a really fun book written by Al Yankovic (yes, Weird Al), called "When I Grow Up". This is a great rhyming book that will enchant all listeners. You will need to own, purchase, or be able to borrow this book to teach this lesson.
I have created a read-aloud guide with 2 stopping points during the book and one after. I have then added questions for a group discussion to follow up the read-aloud. Finally, I have created two worksheets for the students to use to record their long-term goals. One worksheet is one I would use for K-1, and the other one is a worksheet more appropriate for grades 2-5.
