Today in 1/2G we combined our growth mindset session with our fine motor session. We watched the story of ‘The Dot’ by Peter H Reynolds. The dot is about a girl called Vashti and her journey through art class from having a fixed mindset where she would say things like “I’m not good at this” to being able to create wonderful art pieces with just a dot in a variety of ways.
To work on developing and strengthening the pincer grip of the students they taped their paper to the underside of the table and went about creating their own master pieces while lying on the floor.
Everyone had so much fun while creating our very own dot gallery and it was great to hear all of the students giving each other such positive encouragement and feedback!
