We have been learning about ways to foster positive mindsets by reading stories that teach us the important lessons about how to make our brain grow.
In the story "The Most Magnificent Thing", a little girl keeps trying to create a special machine. We learned that trying something new is one way we can make our brain grow.
We learned that it is ok to make mistakes when we read "The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes". We then wrote about times we made mistakes and how we learned from them.
In "Whistle for Willie", a little boy learns how to whistle by practicing. After, we discussed why practicing is important for making ourselves get better at things.
