Make coloring meaningful and decorate your classroom with these growth mindset “Instead of – try thinking” posters! Each poster features a different fixed mindset vs. growth mindset statement. There are 10 different posters to color, each with a unique statement and colorable background. Each poster is presented in both landscape and portrait formats.
In addition, there is a printable fixed mindset vs. growth mindset graphic organizer that can be used in conjunction with the posters. There are two versions included – one with lines and one without. There is also a half-page “Hooray” note that you can send home when you see a student demonstrating a growth mindset.

Suggestions for use:
-Decorate your classroom. Swap out the posters on a regular basis to feature different students’ work.
-See if your admiration will allow you to post colored posters in other parts of the school such as the office, lunch room, hallways etc.
-Feature a different poster each week or month. Have all your students color the same poster and display them all over your room. Consider discussing the poster while the students are coloring. It will be fun to see the different ways your students color the posters and seeing the same statement over and over again will really help them to internalize it.
-Allow students to color posters during indoor recess, read-aloud, or as a calming activity. Students can take posters home to decorate their own rooms.
-Add a writing component by requiring students to fill out the included graphic organizer before coloring a poster or use the statements on the poster as a writing prompt for journals or paragraph writing.
-Use fine-tipped markers or colored pencils for coloring. Perhaps you have “special” markers or pencils that you could let students use for this project.
