Growth Mindset

Super heroes are made, but heroes are born.  ~Antonio (in 365 Days of Wonder)

Growth Mindset

Think of seeds: what will someday be super
starts small. Those who will someday become heroes
often have no inkling that their tiny lives are
about to be made
into something not just big, but
mighty enough for them to become heroes.
You cannot know the good you will do. It is enough that you are

  1. Love. These poems make me want to know more about your students.

  2. Love the title of your poem today. The theme that we don't know from what will grow from a small seed.

  3. Oh, that last line!! That last line brings me to my knees today...

  4. Whoa. Those last two lines.
    I think this is just the neatest project. I can imagine my fifth grade self with goosebumps (because I have them now).
