This discussion leads us to the power of the word YET and how when we can't do something, we should say, "I can't do this YET" instead of "I can't do this." See our class chart below for The Dot by Peter Reynolds // Two Reflective Teachers

This product is great for teaching about growth mindset. I used in conjuction with the book "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds and discussed with my students how changing something as simple as our words could change our whole outlook on things and ensure that we stay life-long learners.
"As a kinder and 1st project we read the book The Dot. A cute story about a little girl who discovers art through a simple series of dot paintings. The students were able to paint their own dot, or not-a-dot, with watercolors. This was a nice simple opportunity for students to use paints and learn the expectations for using watercolors. Ask them why brushes don't like bad hair days!"
