BRAIN TEASER 

Thinking Thursday

Think about a food you don’t like… how could you use a growth mindset to try it?

Why is it important to eat healthy/ mix up your diet?

ART 

This weeks art provocation is the book ‘The Dot’.

Image result for the dot

The children were all given a piece of paper with a random dot somewhere on their page. They then had to use this as a base for their art. This is what they came up with…

What was Vashti’s mindset at the start of the story;

  • Nate- She didn’t believe in her self that she could draw
  • Rho- She used a fixed mindset
  • Jevan – She used a fixed mindset because she said she couldn’t draw
  • Libby- She used a fixed mindset because she was saying she didn’t know how to draw or how to paint
  • Holly- She was using a fixed mindset because she said she could only draw a small little dot
  • Aurora- She used a fixed mindset because she didn’t think she could draw and she was not using enough creativity

How did mindset change;

  • Annaliese- She kept on trying and never stopped
  • Ash- She kept on trying to do what the teacher said and it actually came true and she was surprised
  • Nate- She started from a little dot to a bigger dot and then an even bigger dot and she kept going
  • Holly- She kept on trying and she had so many dots that she made an art show
  • Kurt- The teacher told her to preserve
  • Ava- She used a growth mindset by keep on trying and never giving up and she used creativity to make lots of dots and she used perseverance to keep going on making dots
  • Anna- She followed the teachers instructions and made a dot and then kept making more dots
  • Mia- She taught her self that she can become a real artist and used perseverance
  • Aurora- She followed the teacher and then the teacher kind of tricked her and then she saw the dot and Vashti started making more
