Help me give my students books for the opportunity to GROW by using a growth mindset. Encouraging students to think positively and not give up is a lot easier with fun books to go along with their learning.
My students are at a Title I, low-income school and many receive free or reduced price lunch. Despite these challenges, they have very creative, inquisitive minds and are always excited to find new ways to learn. They love completing projects with a group or individually because they can express their individuality. They come to school excited and ready to learn.
The students I work with are excited to learn and love new experiences.
I am excited to continue encouraging their love of learning and reading by bringing new items into the classroom. This is a great way to keep them engaged and help foster their love of learning. My goal is to create a love of learning that lasts a life-time.
For second graders it can be easy just to give up and stop trying when work gets hard. However, there is so much learning that can happen when we make mistakes. Mistakes do not mean we give up - instead it is a way for us to figure out what went wrong and try again to do better! We are requesting books for the opportunity to GROW by using a growth mindset.
With the help of these books, I hope to bring a growth mindset to each of my students.
A growth mindset will help set each student up for success for the rest of their lives. Having grit means they won't give up when things get hard.
Let's encourage students to make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. Mistakes help us grow as people and as learners.
