my growth mindset year journal side bannerDeveloping a Growth Mindset isn't easy - but that's what makes it important.

There are talents you're born with, talents you develop, and talents that aren't yours...yet. Research shows that your mindset is what drives your abilities to achieve goals and accomplishments, so when we suggest that a student's strengths lie 'elsewhere' - we're actually doing them a disservice to divert their dedication in another direction. 

To develop a growth mindset, we must first understand ourselves, and what strengths we have that help us achieve success in all endeavors. To help students realize these things, we can point them in the direction of looking at goals they've already achieved, milestones they've reached, tools and resources available to them, and asking for input from those around them. Enter this fabulous printable take-home activity created with ideas from Dr. Melissa Hughes, expert on whole brain teaching and learning: My Growth Mindset Year Journal.

Designed for students in grades K-6, this goal-setting, gratitude-focused, family-involved journal is a fun homework assignment to help your students think about what makes them superheroes, and how they can make a plan to develop a growth mindset that will not only help them learn, but help them succeed.
