GROWTH MINDSET ACTIVITY
We have been focusing on a positive growth mindset this year at CMS. We had an activity on Friday to help reinforce this. The Growth Mindset Theme for Friday was “No matter what life throws at you, you can come out on top.” All students that had all their assignments turned in for the third quarter were eligible to see one of the movies that focused on this theme. The movie “The Underdogs” was shown in my classroom and on Friday night a great example of this happened in the NCAA basketball playoffs. The number 16th seed, UMBC (University of Maryland Baltimore County) shocked the number one seed Virginia. The last time this happened was 34 years ago (136 tries).
