     In health class, Mrs. McGilvray and Ms. Hodgdon are teaching students about how to be flexible in their thinking.


How were you a flexible learner today?

*Describe a new strategy you learned.

*Tell a _____ word you learned and what it means.

*Describe a mistake you made and what you learned from it.

*Explain how you challenged yourself today.

*Tell about something you noticed today and how it helped you solve a problem.


Flexible                              vs.           Fixed

I will do my best work. It's good enough.

I'll keep trying. This is too hard. I'm done!

I'll learn from my mistakes. I made a mistake.

This will take some time and effort. I'm not good at this.

What am I missing? I can't make this any better!
