FLL TEAM GETS A ROBOT MOVING

The First Lego League Robotics team has grown tremendously. We have nearly 20 members this year, so we have started two new teams bringing us to a total of 3 teams. The kids are learning how to innovate, use design thinking, pugh charts, build, and program. Last night they were tasked with building their robot chassis prototype ideas. We ended up with two moving robot prototypes last night. I am so impressed with what these fourth, fifth, and sixth graders can do without experience.

K-8 SEL CORNER - YELLOWJACKETS OF THE WEEK!!!

Please take the time to congratulate any familiar faces you see in the picture below because they are our YellowJackets who most exemplify having a GROWTH MINDSET!


When someone has a growth mindset they believe that they can continue to learn and become more intelligent (get smarter) with effort. In contrast, someone who has a fixed mindset believes that they are born with a certain amount of talent and intelligence and that cannot be improved no matter how much effort they put in.


One of the biggest differences between having a growth mindset and having a fixed mindset is how you handle making a mistake or experience a setback (like accidentally doing something wrong, getting a low grade on a test, or having a fight with a friend): Someone with a fixed mindset often gives up and sees a mistake as a failure. But, someone with a growth mindset sees a mistake as a learning opportunity because they believe it will help them grow.
