The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes:

Are you teaching your students about growth mindset? The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes by Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein is a perfect picture book for teachers who want to provide fun instruction on the role of failure and/or making mistakes in growth mindset and fixed mindset perspectives.

Conceptually, these ideas are perfect for any level, but this literature unit was created with 2nd-6th graders in mind (2nd graders may need extra support with some of the activities).

You will find the following activities in this literature unit for The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes:

  • Discussion questions in 1/2 sheet task card form as well as list form (13 questions over 2 pages)
  • Discussion questions answer sheet
  • Compare and Contrast

  • A Week of Purposeful Mistakes…
  • When You Feel Worried (steps for helping)

Your Fantastic Elastic Brain:

Are you teaching your students about growth mindset? Your Fantastic Elastic Brain by JoAnn Deak is a perfect segue for teaching your students the power of growth mindset. Conceptually, these ideas are perfect for any level, but this literature unit was created with 3rd-6th graders in mind.

I recommend starting the school year (or your growth mindset instruction) with material that teaches students about the brain. This provides students with a solid foundation for building subsequent growth mindset instruction.

Infused with reflections, challenges (including a STEM challenge for creating slingshots using rubber bands), and opportunities to identify and clarify growth mindset vs. fixed mindset, your students are sure to learn and have great fun!

Your Fantastic Elastic Brain activities included:

  • Brainstorming ways to use elastics
  • Comparing and contrasting using a Venn diagram
  • Fixed Mindset vs. Growth Mindset
  • Prompts for student reflections
  • A rubber band challenge
  • Identifying parts of the brain and their purpose
  • Fantastic Elastic Brain bookmarks (in full color and black and white)
  • Slingshot STEM challenge
  • Growth Mindset Posters (5 posters in full color and in black and white)
  • Answer Keys where deemed appropriate

Beautiful Oops:

Are you teaching your students about growth mindset? Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg is a perfect picture book for teachers who want to provide fun instruction on the role of making mistakes in growth mindset and fixed mindset perspectives.

Conceptually, these ideas are perfect for any level, but this literature unit was created with 2nd-6th graders in mind (2nd graders may need extra support with some of the activities).

You will find the following activities in this literature unit for Beautiful Oops:

  • Teacher Tips
  • Your Oops
  • A Glass Half Full
  • Growth Mindset: Beautiful Oops
  • What’s the Use?
  • Self-compassion
  • Creations with Oops

  • Sharing My Best Oops Moment
  • I Meant to do That!

PLEASE NOTE: Since the questions and activities are opinion and experience based, there are NO answer keys.

    I thought the books would be easier to access than they are. I am in need of purchasing them for myself since our school library actually does not have them, and I had not actually heard of the titles before, but the materials assume you know they are not included.

    I loved being able to use these for all growth mindset lessons. The kids particularly liked the sheets to go with The Dot. They took a lot more out of the books by doing the sheets instead of reading and discussing
