Neurons Take-Home Bracelets - Class Dojo Growth Mindset

If you have been following along with Class Dojo’s amazing growth mindset series, you know how much the students are getting into it! My students have LOVED learning about developing a growth mindset and are learning so much! In Episode 4, we learned all about neurons and how we can promote connections between our neurons by trying new challenges! To encourage my students to share their new learning with their families, they decorated these fun bracelets to wear home! Want some for your students? Click the cover picture above!

Inspiring a Growth Mindset

Did you know that research has actually shown that when students learn they can develop intelligence with effort and they aren’t just born with their intelligence, they do better in school? Thanks to ClassDojo and Stanford, teachers can easily start introducing this idea to their students. ClassDojo is releasing a set of 5 short videos that introduce the idea that our brains act like muscles – we need to “work them” to grow them. My students love them and are disappointed that we can’t watch more than one at a time! (They are releasing one a week until all 5 are released in mid-February.) Click on the ClassDojo monsters to check them out!

ClassDojo Mindset Episodes

We start every morning with a class meeting to settle into our day and build a sense of community. For the last two weeks, we have started our Mondays with one of ClassDojo’s videos. They include great discussion questions that we talk about together. The students think about their answer, share with a partner, and then have the opportunity to share with the class. To wrap it up, they take home a sheet from ClassDojo with take-home questions to share with their parents.

Student Responses - Class Dojo

I wanted them to remember all of the great things we are learning about having a growth mindset, so I came up with some fun posters to color. We have been coloring one every few days to remind ourselves to have a growth mindset. I tried to leave them pretty open so there was room for them to add their own creative touches. I then encourage them to keep them in their binder, put them up in their house, or post in the hallway for other students to see.
