Teaching students to have a positive ‘growth’ mindset can be invaluable. Why? Students with a positive mindset believe they can develop abilities through hard work. Basically, that they are only limited by what they believe about themselves and the effort(s) that the apply to learn new things.
Students with a positive growth mindset are more resilient in the face of failure, more engaged in their own learning, and more apt to work hard to overcome a challenge.
With this in mind, I’ve created a set of resources that can be used for Kindergarten – 5th grade that will help you teach your students to have a positive growth mindset!

This product contains a mini-book for students to create. On each page, they will be giving one of the positive growth mindset quotes. They will be asked a question and then asked to draw a related picture!
The product is divided in to two sections to provide for different level abilities.
This resource has two sets of bookmarks to make it easier for you to print according to your needs: a classroom set and an individual set. The classroom set has four identical bookmarks on each page.The individual set has 4 different bookmarks per page.
Most children have a natural creative streak but sometimes it is hard for them to get an idea out of their heads and onto a piece of paper. That’s why I’m currently creating my NEW “Color & Create a Story” Worksheets.
These are all designed to spark children’s imagination by providing them a picture on which to base their story. First, your child (or students) will color a picture. Then, they are given space to create a story about the picture!
