When we returned back from vacation and it was the start of the new year, I was tempted to have the students write New Year's Resolutions. Rather I took the opportunity to work with students on growth mindset. We discussed all the things we can't do. While the students found this to be kind of strange we listed a bunch of things from driving a car to tying laces. We then read the book Giraffes Can't Dance and talked about the way Giraffe just needed a different song. It wasn't that he couldn't dance, he just couldn't dance yet. With that we created our own goals around something we can't do yet but if we make a plan we will be able to get there!
