Growth Mindset Journal Writing Prompts for 4th Grade and Up:
These Growth Mindset Writing Prompts are perfect for any 4th grade (and UP) classroom.

This product was created for students and teachers who are working on growth mindset in their classroom. Please note that if your students are not familiar with a fixed mindset and growth mindset, they will need some introductory information before using these journal prompts.

- teacher tips
- optional back pages (blank lines if you choose to copy front-to-back for students to have extra space to write)

This is a nice product, however, I do not like the strict copyright rules. I always give credit to the author of the material. I do not like the rule that I can’t share with my colleague and can’t not tweak it to personalize it for my school. I also do not like that it can not be put on electronic media for students. My school just went 1:1 computers so it would have been nice to put these forms on google classroom so student students can type on them. You may want to rethink things for the future.

As we had to suddenly transition to distance learning in the spring, this was a great resource for them to complete independently and then share with the class over Zoom. Engaging topics to discuss, and it was especially important to work on growth mindset as we encountered the massive changes due to the sudden covid shutdown.
