The Value of Character Education Posters for Teaching Growth Mindset
One of the reasons that we homeschool is to provide our boys with important values and character training. I realized that our homeschool plans for this year were lacking these areas.
How did I let growth mindset lessons slip through the cracks this year?
Homeschooling five boys (preschool through high school) keeps me on my toes. Our erratic schedule often has us homeschooling on-the-go and getting creative with when we homeschool.
With all that hustle and bustle, sometimes extras get nudged to the side. I know, however, the importance of instilling growth mindset beliefs and practices in my boys.
As our homeschool year continues to unfold, our homeschool morning time is running smoother. It feels like a good time to add character education back to the start of our day 🙂
I wanted to be able to include all five boys in our character education mini-lessons. Therefore, these lessons needed to be:
- visual reminders
- positive practices
- suitable for different ages
I’m a firm believer that children learn best with juicy nuggets of engaging information. Personally, I don’t think it necessary to beat a dead horse (I strongly dislike that phrase but it gets the message across).
So, I created these 10 character education posters for simple, gentle reminders with discussion and review of positive practices for interpersonal skills and self-growth!
How to Use These Free Character Education Posters to Teach Growth Mindset
Think about how these 10 Free Printable Character Education Posters can be used to help you teach your kids these valuable lessons.
Consider when and how often you will use to discuss and practice these lessons. Here are a few suggestions on how to use:
- As part of your morning time board
- Hang in your homeschool or classroom area as visual reminders
- Use in the front clear slot of cover on your students’ binders
- Arrange on a cork board or bulletin board for a Character Education theme
I suggest at least discussing and defining each positive practice with your kids. Share examples of what each positive practice looks like in action. Encourage your kids to share their thoughts and ideas.
If desired, you can use books and games to reinforce these positive practices.
Provide positive reinforcement when you catch your kids doing these positive practices. Praise them for their choices and actions with specific terms and examples.
Instead of saying, “Wow! You are awesome!” give praise with an observation like, “I’m very impressed with how hard you’re working and how you keep trying no matter what.”
