Growth Mindset: September
Everyone Can Learn!
The Mindset practice for September is “EVERYONE Can Learn!” Students learning about growth mindset are learning that they are capable of achievement in all areas and then going on to prove it. They are receiving the message that the brain is capable of growth, but must be pushed and exercised to experience that growth.
Here are some things that you can do to extend and promote growth mindset in your home:
1. Encourage your child to take risks and tackle new challenges at school.
2. Praise your child not for the ease with which he or she learns a concept but for the amount of effort put into learning it.
3. Emphasize perseverance in extra curricular activities.
Teachers will be facilitating various growth mindset activities and lessons throughout the month. Be sure to ask your child what they have learned.
