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.
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
Classroom Guide: The Dot and Ish by Peter H. Reynolds | Scribd These books can be used for teaching kids about a growth mindset and that it's ok to make mistakes. When they allow their creativity to flow freely without worrying about being perfect, they can focus, problem solve and think more clearly. They become "unstuck" and can enjoy their artwork.
"The bridge will only take you halfway there, to those mysterious lands you long to see. Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fair, and moonlit woods where unicorns run free. So come and walk awhile with me and share the twisting trails and wondrous worlds I've known. But this bridge will only take you halfway there. The last few steps you have to take alone." — Shel Silverstein
