Growth Mindset Display

PDF | 8 pages|Grades: 1 - 6

A growth mindset display to use in the classroom.

When I was teaching in the classroom, growth mindset was a game-changer. I had a large, hand-painted sign that read ‘YET!’, and my students were always pointing to it when they heard a classmate say, “I don’t get it” or “I can’t do it”.

What is Growth Mindset?

At its core, a growth mindset is just a belief that you have about yourself that you can achieve anything. It’s a way of teaching your students to fail forward – that is, learning from their mistakes and realizing that just because they can’t do something now doesn’t mean they will never be able to do it. In reference to my ‘YET!’ poster, we always said “I don’t understand this yet” and “I can’t do this yet“.

Display this set of posters in your classroom to encourage a growth mindset. Download the tabloid-size for an extra-large display, or use the letter-size for a smaller display.
