Practicing Growth Mindset in Third Grade

Third graders at Willits learned that they may be faced with challenges and that plans may not go their way. They also learned that they might not get things right on the first try (and that's okay!). To practice Growth Mindset, students worked in teams to complete a series of cup stacking challenges during the first week of school. During this activity, they learned to embrace new challenges, celebrate each other, try new strategies, try suggestions, be patient, and have an open mind!
