Mrs. P. from New Orleans LA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Growth Mindset for Life

My students need a library full of WONDERFUL literature! We are in desperate need of a few new books to dive into together this year! All of these books are promoting a growth mindset!

My Students

Welcome to the heart of 'Nawlins, or New Orleans. My class consists of seventeen 4-5 year old students who are eager to learn every single day! Our favorite time to learn is during free-choice centers. This is where student imagination runs wild and connections with the brain are made.

My scholars are not only learning academics, (alphabet letters, numbers, etc...) but they are learning about character, responsibility, and how to make friends.

We find joy in every day through small art projects to large STEM projects.

My Project

My students will use these resources in a variety of ways. Firstly, they will have a WHOLE new library, yay! I can't even begin to say how important it is for young children to begin to love books at an early age. And their teacher, me, will begin to implement a Growth Mindset into the students with the coaching books.

The first year of school can make a WORLD of difference, and I hope to make it a positive, confident world.

I am excited to begin learning more about Growth Mindset and seeing the changes in my classroom. These small, but mighty changes can make the difference between succeeding in school or dropping out at an early age.
