A couple of weeks ago, our class had an opportunity to do an activity. We began by watching the following video on facing adversary, and developing resilience skills.
We talked about how the little voice that we hear in our head sometimes puts us down. We discussed these comments that we sometimes think to ourselves, and worked on finding ways that we could change what that voice says.
Our students came up with a fantastic collection of "rebuttals" for their little voices. Hopefully we can access these positive approaches more and more frequently and develop that growth mindset that we are trying to foster in our classroom. With practice, our students can rise above doubt and achieve anything they set their minds to :)

To my students: you've got this :)
