Helping Your Child With A Growth Mindset

A growth mindset is the underlying belief that abilities can be developed through effort and practice. Children with a growth mindset persist in the face of challenges because they understand that effort and hard work can change ability and intelligence.
Growth mindset is a term that should pretty recognizable to Salnave students. We have taught to the meaning of this word, intertwined the concept in all of our academic and SEL learning, and posted visuals through out our building.
Here is a great flier and bookmark activity to help your student practice a GROWTH MINDSET!

Creating a Calm Down Space at Home

At Salnave Elementary every classroom utilized a Calm Down Space. All students were taught the “why” and “how” they were to be effectively used. I created this in hopes of helping continue some routines we have established at Salnave to continue into your homes. Please note these are just ideas, families can adjust them to fit for their home. The PDF below will help you start the process of setting up a Calm Down Space at home.

Purple Up! For Military Kids and Hero activity

Did you know on April 15th it is Purple Up! For Military Kids Day? “Purple Up! For Military Kids” is a day for DoDEA Communities to wear purple to show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices. I cannot thank all our military kids and families enough for their service and dedication!

I thought wouldn't it be great if we all took the time to recognize someone that is a Hero to you and let them know why they are your Hero! Use the PDF below to see what you can do as a fun activity to recognize your hero's.
