There are many times within class that a Physie teacher may hear from her students “It’s too hard”, “I can’t do this” or “I’ll never get it!” The way we think and the words we say to ourselves have a great impact on our actions and our achievements! It’s time to focus on our mindset.
A popular idea for classrooms is to set up this board “Change Your Words – Change Your Mindset”. We have adapted the original idea to suit physie or dance class.
Our ability to choose the way think decides if and how we overcome difficulties, achieve our goals and struggle through or enjoy the process! Try placing this list in view of your students, perhaps in their warm up area. Parents might like to print it out to place somewhere at home. Take care to apply these words to your own experiences to set an example for your students.
