Yet by mholtzen I started using the word “Yet” with my students a couple years ago. When a child says, “But I don’t get it,” or “I can’t do this,” which happens often in my land of perfectionists, I add the word, “Yet” to the end of their declaration. Would be cool to use as an anchor chart or as a bulletin board.
Outlaw "I'm Done!" I LOVE this post from Kady at The Teacher Trap. She makes some really good points and includes suggestions for helping kids change their mindsets about rushing through their assignments. Awesome!
