A Story about Falling, Falling and then Getting Back Up
This is a wonderful story written by Kevin Bergeron about falling down, failing and then getting back up and working towards success. This is a perfect example of all that the Growth Mindset teaches.

Practice Moves Us Forward
In my class, we have a culture of safety and perseverance. We try things, we make mistakes and we grow and learn together. No matter how well we do, we support each other by using encouraging words, clapping for each other and taking turns. I always point out when I fail at something so that the students know that it is o.k. and that I have just learned from my mistake. We always keep trying!
