Students practice Perseverance
Ms. Silva said she was impressed at how students recalled their recent lesson on growth mindsets to help the persevere and try different ways to achieve their goal. She is hopeful that students will develop this skill further and carry it over into their daily lives, practicing perseverance in all of their classes, on the playground, and at home.
Ms. Silva reminded students to call on their growth mindset skills to help get the cookie from their foreheads into their mouths.
Along with perseverance, students also illustrated problem solving by finding ways to save their cookie from hitting the ground.
Through observation and conversations, students worked together to find ways to best complete the task at hand.
"I had to try a bunch of things, but I finally got to eat my cookie."
"After dropping our cookies, we started catching them in our shirts."
