I am on the mindset committee at school and started reading Mindset in the Classroom. I look forward to seeing how it can improve our classroom and school.

Moving forward in 2016...
I love reading this book to students immediately upon returning to school. After reading the book, we discussed what a resolution is. Then, we chart ideas of possible resolutions for school.
I was so impressed with my Kindergarten students ability to reflect.
After reading the book and discussing whole class goals, I meet with individual students to help them decide on their goals.
Students choose from goals from work habits, math, reading, and writing.
This is the template students use to record their goals. Once the goal is met, I check it off and date it. I believe goal setting is very empowering for students.
