Each Thursday, Mrs. Swintak comes in our classroom to work on "growth mindset." See the flyer below to refresh your memory. It's basically changing your attitude about learning and not being afraid to make mistakes. It's going VERY well. This week we brainstormed phrases that we could use to encourage our growth mindset. See the pictures of our work.
As part of our unit on Rube Goldberg and STEM standards, we completed an engineering challenge. Students used materials provided to knock a toy figure onto a target on the ground. They had to go back and resign when their original plan didn't work. It was so exciting when they perfected their designs!! 😊
Mrs. Martin has been teaching in Attleboro for 13 years.
