I am aiming to instil a positive mindset into my class this year!
Growth mindset for learning is so important. No matter how many fancy displays you have or creative themes and strategies for learning – if the children do not have that ‘can do’ attitude then what’s the point?
Children need to be intrinsically interested in what they are doing to learn well.
I have a few ideas in mind to do this and I will share classroom ideas shortly. But the best time to build on this growth mind set is within those first few weeks of teaching, when you are building in the rules and routines in the classroom.
Enjoy the rest of your summer holiday
