Ms. Rylick’s grade 3 class has been focusing on Growth Mindset the last few days. On the first day of school, the student learned about neurons and how the brain makes new neural connections each time we learn something new. In other words, we can grow our smarts! Today we participated in the Great Marshmallow Challenge. The students were tasked to build the tallest tower using only string, tape, spaghetti, and one marshmallow. Although none of our groups were successful, we learned an important lesson about failure. Failure is a necessary part of the learning process and we hope to learn from our failures this year!
