Growth Mindset: I Can Make Mistakes & Do Hard Things (Ongoing 8-10 Year Olds)
Karla Griffin (B.A. Elementary Education)
Confidence building, making mistakes, positive self-talk, and grit are just some of the important qualities to help instill a growth mindset in children. In this interactive class, learners will apply these topics to their everyday life.
A growth mindset is a belief that the ability to learn is not fixed. It can change with your efforts. When kids learn how the brain changes and grows in response to challenges and failures they persevere because they don’t believe failure is a permanent condition. ~Angela Duckworth This weekly class is designed to help students develop and strengthen their growth mindset over time. Each week, we will explore how different mindsets manifest themselves (fixed mindset vs. growth mindset)...
This class is taught in English.
I have a degree in elementary education and have been working with kids through teaching, coaching, and childcare for over 15 years. I have extensive experience and expertise working with ESL learners. Also, I am raising three boys of my own ( ages 1, 5 & 8). I am often inspired to create classes that cover subjects I find important in my own parenting journey. I am a lifelong learner and an avid reader. To support my curriculum development I dedicate significant time to reading, listening, and learning about the most current research on child development, teaching, and parenting.
Homework OfferedThroughout this course there will be optional worksheets posted to the classrooms after the class takes place.
See the welcome message for worksheets to prepare for your first class.
