Add a printable "In This Class, Mistakes Are Expected" poster to your classroom to foster a positive classroom environment.
Let Students Know Mistakes Are Expected in Your Classroom
Create a positive learning environment, and encourage your students to learn from their mistakes with a printable poster that reminds them, “In This Class, Mistakes Are Expected, Inspected and Respected.”
Using the phrase “mistakes are expected” in the classroom sets the tone for a positive learning environment where students feel comfortable taking risks and asking questions. It encourages a classroom culture of learning where collaboration and empathy are fostered and where students learn from one another’s mistakes, offer support and celebrate each other’s successes!
Help Students Grow From Mistakes
Knowing that “mistakes are expected” in your classroom is key to building a growth mindset and helping your students develop a positive response to learning (and personal) setbacks. When it’s OK to make mistakes, students come to understand that mistakes are not failures but rather stepping stones toward improvement.
By reframing mistakes as learning opportunities, we help our students bounce back from setbacks, persevere through challenges and keep trying until they succeed. Our students learn to see setbacks as temporary and develop the resilience to keep pushing forward.
This environment fosters a growth mindset by emphasizing that everyone is on a learning journey, and mistakes are an essential part of that process.
