During Fourth Grade we are working hard to develop more than a good memory for facts and figures, we are working to develop a Growth Mindset! Yet Yeti is part of it. Are there some things you can‘t do? Some things you don‘t know? Sure. We all have things yet to be learned and yet to be tried. Yet Yeti is a way of reframing Fourth Grade minds to think “I may not know it now, but I will yet.”

It’s a very small change that can have big results. When you think of something as yet to be done, or yet to be learned, you are setting yourself up to accomplish it. Below are a couple of videos about gaining a Growth Mindset. More yet to come.
