This past week we continued learning about Growth Mindset and what happens if you make a mistake. We learned that mistakes are one of the best ways to stretch our brains. We read a book that was FULL of mistakes. The author and artist, Barney Saltzberg, created a book from these mistakes. We discussed that it could have been very easy for Barney to throw away all of his mistakes and to get frustrated. However, instead, he used a growth mindset to turn his mistakes into something beautiful.
After the story, we learned what we could do in our classroom if you do make a mistake.
They each got a piece of paper that had a mistake on it and changed it into something beautiful. Check out all of their creations! They definitely grew their brains!
