In Autahi this week we have been talking about what it means to have a growth mindset. A growth mindset is about opening ourselves up to mistakes and embracing them as opportunities to learn.
Instead of saying we can't do something we could say that we will give it another try.
Learning to write is tricky for lots of us (including the teachers). We have broken down the things that we need in order to be good writers and placed them on these steps. By breaking down these steps we can work on small chunks that over time will help us achieve our goal of being able to write.
Soon we will be each setting our writing goal to help us focus on the next skill that will help us write awesome stories. Once we have mastered a skill we will move ourselves up the steps and see us getting a little closer to the top. Each writing session we will talk about our goal so that it is front of mind for us when we sit down to write.
We invite you to pop in and have a look for yourself (when we are able to) and see what goal your child is working towards.
