Welcome back to school! This year, I will be sharing my “Big Idea” of the month on this website. This is the theme of my classroom visits for the month. You can see when your student’s classroom will be visited by finding their teacher’s name on my Google calendar at the bottom of this screen.
Also, watch for future information on Mental Health Screenings and other events.
BIG IDEA for AUGUST
What is it?
At its most basic level, it is the belief that…
*Our brains can change and grow.
*Intelligence and ability can be increased through learning and practice.
*Mistakes and failures are opportunities to learn.
These beliefs help students be more resilient and willing to try new things. They understand that when they struggle, they are growing. They become more willing and capable learners, and they believe more in their abilities.
Mrs. Keller's Big Idea for August
Growth Mindset: What does it mean? Believing that your brain can grow, and you can learn to do challenging things!
You can practice this skill by...
- Trying new things
- Learning from mistakes
- Believing that you can learn
Be a brave learner!
I feel proud when I work hard! When I struggle, I grow! I control the choices I make!
A great resource to help with mental health!
