THIS SET of End of the Year Awards with Growth Mind-Set Quotes (Grades 6-8)…is just what you’ve been looking for because you’ve run out of steam. You’re ready for summer, but you want to reward your students with something meaningful and special for all their hard work and effort. This is a unique resource offering, more than ordinary awards as it includes thought provoking statements from various philosophers, artists, scientists, historians, psychologists, writers and more.
WHY have I chosen to use growth mind set quotes in this resource, you ask? Simply, because they teach kids to challenge themselves and not sit back and accept the status quo.
You’ll find an award that fits every student, they’re not only for your brightest and most popular. Your kids will feel good about themselves upon receiving theirs and their growth mindset quote will be something that they’ll remember with fondness as they look back to the time they spent with you.
☻This passage about the benefit of Growth Mindset Activities was written by Carol Dweck PhD.
➫”Why waste time proving over and over how great you are, when you could be getting better? Why hide deficiencies instead of overcoming them? Why look for friends or partners who will just shore up your self-esteem instead of ones who will also challenge you to grow? And why seek out the tried and true, instead of experiences that will stretch you? The passion for stretching yourself and sticking to it, even (or especially) when it’s not going well, is the hallmark of the growth mindset. This is the mindset that allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times in their lives.”

♥When I did this activity with my 6th graders we had an awards ceremony and invited parents and others who were involved with them. I bought donut holes, and cider. Some of the parents also brought goodies to share. With much pomp and circumstance, awards were distributed and the kids were on Cloud 9. The last day of school finally arrived, we played games, watched a movie, and pigged out. When it was time to leave, there were hugs and tears as we all said good-bye, knowing that we’d never be together, like this, again. ♥
