Help your students learn how to cope when they make a mistake with this social story mini-book.

Let’s Be Social – Stories for the Classroom

In recent times, teaching students to develop a growth mindset has become a huge focus for teachers. Helping students develop the necessary skills and strategies to cope with mistakes has become an integral part of our students’ social-emotional education.

Teach Starter has created a printable mini-book to help your students learn how to cope when they don’t get the right answer. Each page is designed in a simple manner with real-life photographs to help students make connections and understand the examples. In this mini-book, students will learn important points such as:

  • It is okay to get answers wrong. Everybody makes mistakes.
  • I can learn new things from my mistakes.
  • My teacher and my friends can help me.

The last page of the mini-book also poses a question with three picture choices for students to choose from as their answer.

Multiple Applications for This Growth Mindset Mini-Book

This social narrative story can be used in a variety of different ways with your students. It could be used as a:

  • Whole-class lesson (via smartboard)
  • Collaborative group activity
  • Targeted teacher-student activity
  • Take-home resource.
