1.    What does it mean to GROW?What kinds of things grow? Answers will vary. Growth means to develop, change, mature, evolve. Living things grow - plants, animals, and people. Even our brains can grow!

 

2.    When you think of the brain or minds, what do you think MINDSET means? Mindset is the way our brain perceives ourselves and the world. Our mindset helps us look at problems and mistakes in a positive way!

 

3.    Let’s put those words together: growth and mindset. When we combine them, it means something really important. What could growth mindset mean? A growth mindset is believing in the power of yourself and your brain! We know our intellect and abilities develop when we try hard things, use the right strategies, and don’t give up. So a growth mindset is when we know, with practice, we will get better at something.

4.    If fixed is the opposite of growth, what does it mean to have a FIXED mindset? A fixed mindset means you think you can’t get better at things, even if you practice. Wanting to quit, give up, or deciding we’re just not good at something are all the clues we have a fixed mindset.

Activity:
Have kids write and draw what they like about themselves – A strong self-esteem helps your students have a growth mindset. By writing/drawing positive affirmations about themselves, it reinforces a growth mindset. Encourage them to place their positive reminders in a place they see them every morning when they wake up.

I personally broke my bone in my ankle when I was 12 years old. I had to put into a cast for 6 weeks. Luckily it was a waterproof cast, so I was allowed to get it wet. I had to use crutches for 3 weeks. (I wasn’t allowed to walk on my cast foot) and then had a walking boot (wear I can walk) for 3 weeks. 

I got the cast off and then I had to see a doctor to help me get my movement back in my foot. This is called physical therapy. I did this for about 2 months. I visit the Physical Therapist 1x a week and gave me exercises to do at home.
