This discussion leads us to the power of the word YET and how when we can't do something, we should say, "I can't do this YET" instead of "I can't do this." See our class chart below for The Dot by Peter Reynolds // Two Reflective Teachers
This product is great for teaching about growth mindset. I used in conjuction with the book "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds and discussed with my students how changing something as simple as our words could change our whole outlook on things and ensure that we stay life-long learners.
First day project for everyone!!! After reading "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds, students create their own dots framed in "swirly gold." This was my first week activity and the dots now cover the bulletin board in the art room with the quote "Just make a mark and see where it takes you." - Peter Reynolds
