This week, we began a conversation about our brains. We learned that they are like a muscle and get stronger every time we use them, even when we make mistakes or when we try something new! We listened to the story Everyone Can Learn to Ride a Bicycle by Chris Raschka and made connections between the story and times we have tried again and again to learn something new.
Everyone brainstormed a way they can talk to themselves when something is hard. Some ideas were "I will keep trying" and "I will try again and again." We also watched the short video below. During the year, we will stop and revisit the idea of how we can affirm out growth mindset and remind ourselves that mistakes are the first part of learning!
