    Mindset Matters...



    Fixed VS. Growth Mindset:


    Encouraging children to have a growth mindset is very important. Children with fixed mindsets tend to ignore feedback, whereas children with growth mindsets tend to learn from feedback.


    What can you do to help? Encourage Failure! Your child needs to know that failure can and does happen. And that is okay! Remind your child that each time he/she fails and tries again, his/her brain is growing stronger! Don’t try to stop or prevent failure- this is how children learn to persevere in the face of challenges.

Art Rocks!

    Viking Elementary Art Students Rock Maplewood

    Viking Elementary art students are pairing up with friends of Maplewood this fall to do a rockin' art project.  Students will be painting rocks and putting them along the trails in the park. On the back of the rock there will be a email address. The finder of the rock can send an email letting us know who found it and where they are from. That person can hide the rock again or take it with them and hide it elsewhere. Students would like to track our rocks journey and have some pretty cool discussions in class. This project will also get kids out enjoying the beautiful fall colors on the trails of Maplewood. Win win!
