Sharing: Growth Mindset Resources

I love coming across really helpful articles, and Upper Elementary has done a fantastic job of featuring Growth Mindset. 

I actually found the information at The Teacher Studio

which directed me to Upper Elementary.

Take a look:

Schoolhouse Diva has a poster you may be interested in.

I would like to finish up with the posters I purchased, because I think they are fabulous!

Sam Van Gorp designed them, and they are not only adorable, but effective. I saw an immediate change in students once we began using them in the classroom.

I'm on the look-out for great "Growth Mindset" resources so you may want to follow me on Pinterest. Don't forget to click the follow button to get update on other great ideas by following this blog.

Thoughts on Quality Teachers and their Amazing Products

I am continually astounded by the wealth of information to be found on Teachers Pay Teachers. Everyday, I discover some "new treasure" that I just cannot live without, because the "treasure"  will help my students become better learners, readers, thinkers, and decision-makers. This morning I was looking around and discovered that one of the teachers I follow has developed many top quality Project Based Learning products. This is an area that I want to get better at.  I have posted Performing in Education's Logo, so you can click on it to view her freebies. I found her freebie link on her webpage at Performing in Education.
Personally, I am quite excited to try out several of her PBL projects, because I have not had training in Project Based Learning yet, but I want my students to participate in this kind of learning. Once you see and test out a few of PiE's (Performing in Education's) freebies, you are going to want to purchase some of the in-depth projects that PiE features.

Many of you know that I have been working on my master's thesis and so I have not been able to contribute much to the education world or create new products for my classroom, so I have relied on your creating quality products that I use. I want to thank the hundreds of teacher friends I have made from Teachers Pay Teachers and I look forward to discovering more great teachers out there.
