HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Talk with your children about their successes over the last year, and even some things that were challenging. For example, reading a chapter book, tying shoes, getting a hit in a baseball game, meeting new friends, memorizing math facts, etc. Next, commend him/her for the grit and perseverance that was necessary to achieve these goals. Remind them of times when they could not do specific tasks. These are quality traits that will serve our students well in college, careers, and as citizens. Then, help our children think about new goals to set and begin to plan the steps to achieve them. For example, plan to read one more chapter/book a day, practice a skill without coach/teacher directing, reach out to a student he/she doesn't know, never say "I can't", always say "I can't YET" or "I'll keep trying", or just try something completely new and a little bit scary or uncomfortable.
These ideas can help our students to grow and develop into risk taking, persevering, and 'sky's the limit' human beings who will creatively solve problems for all of our futures.
Here are 85 GREAT BOOKS for children and parents to help teach a growth mindset.
