As mentioned in an earlier post, we have started learning about developing a growth mindset to help us be the best learners we can be! We have come up with some ways to develop a growth mindset, effective praise (the teacher can give) to develop a growth mindset (because who learns anything from "good job"?!) and ways toe develop a growth mindset in maths. Check it out! BECAUSE HOW YOU THINK = HOW YOU LEARN!

INSTEAD OF
THINKING…
(FIXED MINDSET) |
WE CAN THINK…
(GROWTH MINDSET) |

I can’t do this |
I can achieve success |

This is too
hard |
I’m going to give this my all |

I hate maths |
I’m going to train my brain to learning in maths |

I’m so good at this |
I’m going to challenge myself to extend my
learning |

I’m finished my work |
How can I progress even further? |

I don’t want to do this |
This is difficult, but I can learn and I can
succeed |

They are so much better/ smarter than me |
What can I learn from them to achieve success? |

EFFECTIVE PRAISE FOR DEVELOPING

GROWTH MINDSET

YOU HAVE WORKED VERY HARD ON
THAT |

I CAN SEE YOU HAVE USED
DIFFERENT STRATEGIES TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM |

YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK |

YOU HAVE BEEN PRACTICING |

YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOUR
HARD WORK |

YOU ARE WORKING HARD TO ACHIEVE
SUCCESS |

YOU ARE WORKING HARD TO MAKE
PROGRESS/ IMPROVEMENTS |

THAT LOOKS INTERESTING, TELL ME
ABOUT THAT |

I LIKE THE WAY YOU HAVE… |

INSTEAD OF…(FIXED MINDSET) |
TRY THINKING…(GROWTH MINDSET) |

I can’t do division |
I know I can train my brain
to learn division |

I don’t like fractions |
I find fractions challenging
but I know I can achieve success |

This problem is too hard |
This is going to take some
time and effort |

I don’t get it |
I will try a different
strategy |

I’ll never learn all my times
tables |
Learning my times tables is
challenging but achievable |

I’m not good at maths |
