Is your child willing to take on challenges and keep working on them despite setbacks? That’s a sign of a growth mindset—believing that abilities can improve over time. But some struggling learners have a fixed mindset. They think that their abilities are set and won’t ever improve, even with effort.
Developing a growth mindset is an ongoing process. You can help your child move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset with the help of these fun activities. Use these downloads to show your child how to learn from mistakes and find new ways to approach challenges. Your child can start thinking, “What’s next?” and “I can”—instead of “I’m done” and “I can’t.”
