Growth Mindset

Growth mindset is something that we have been focusing on during social studies time. We have worked hard learning that our brain is a muscle. The more we work hard, the bigger and stronger our brain is going to get. We have talked a lot about the word "YET" within our classroom, too. We use the word when we haven't quite gotten something down or haven't mastered something yet. Instead of saying, "I don't get this, I give up" we say "I don't know it yet, but I will keep working on it and will get there". 

We have also talked about how to tell someone that you like how they have worked. We have learned to give specific comments such as, "I like how you wrote your numbers up to 20. I can tell you worked very hard on that." instead of, "Wow! Great Job!"
