What if there was a place at home or in the classroom where kids can learn about the incredible power of their brain, problem solve, reflect on their mistakes, brainstorm ideas, work on projects, and dream big?
That place is called a Growth Mindset Corner!
What is a Growth Mindset Corner?
It’s a special space you can create at home (or in the classroom) where children can go to find inspiration or work through their challenges. It is a powerful tool for learning and practicing growth mindset and other key skills like problem-solving and goal-setting.
When to use it?
- When kids are facing a problem and need to brainstorm solutions
- When they are frustrated about a failure or mistake
- When they want to create or invent something cool
- While setting goals or dreaming about the future
How to create one?
A Growth Mindset Corner can be tailored to meet your child’s needs and preferences. Get them on board and let them help design and put the corner together. When children take ownership, they are more invested in making it a place they want to use versus a space they have to use.
Follow these 5 simple steps to create an engaging and fun Growth Mindset Corner for your child or students.
