The Magic of Mistakes

Class Dojo is creating a series of animated videos for young students to promote a Growth Mindset.  “The Magic of Mistakes” is the second video to be published, and I think it has a great message for your students.  While we don’t want our students to be afraid of making mistakes, we need to be careful about the way we emphasize the importance of mistakes.  Mistakes can be good – but only if you learn from them.  Mojo’s friend, Katie, helps to make that distinction in “The Magic of Mistakes.”

There is a short discussion guide that you can download for the video, which includes questions for parents and students to think about at home.  Class Dojo will be releasing a video for this series once a week for the next three weeks, so be sure to stay tuned!
