Teach students about growth mindset with the story “The Pout Pout Fish Goes to School” by Deborah Diesen. Students learn how to adopt a growth mindset, overcome the “first day jitters,” and have a positive attitude, just like Pout Pout Fish! Digital for Google Slides™, PowerPoint, and printable formats are all included for both in-person and digital learning.
⭐ THIS RESOURCE INCLUDES:
✅ A digital for Google Slides™ interactive lesson that summarizes the story and teaches about the “first day jitters,” the difference between growth mindset and fixed mindset, the power of yet, and how to adopt a growth mindset! An interactive drag-and-drop activity lets students read 24 scenarios and determine if they show a growth mindset or a fixed mindset. Perfect for distance learning or in-person learning on a device!
✅ A PowerPoint presentation that teaches the same material as the Google Slides™ version – but is intended for in-person learning!
✅ Printable instructional posters that teach about growth mindset and fixed mindset.
✅ Printable worksheets and coloring pages for a variety of ages and ability levels!
✅ Document that shows how the lesson is aligned to ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors.
✂️ I recommend having a copy of the story “The Pout Pout Fish Goes to School” and two brown paper lunch sacks on hand for this lesson!
