FREE End-of-the-Year Math Reflection Questions


How can we promote a growth mindset in math? 

The end of the school year provides a natural opportunity for students to reflect on the year and the work they have done. Promoting self-reflection not only encourages students to look back at failures but also to celebrate them, providing us with an opportunity to promote a growth mindset in our students and set them up for success for the next school year. This classroom freebie includes 8 self-reflection cards that promote a healthy mathematical mindset. The discussion cards can be used round-robin style, as a whole class discussion activity, or as journal prompts. Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of the pack.

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Why Music: An Essay, and a few Questions (FREEBIE!!)”

by One Arts Infusion Collaborative

3rd – 6th Grade



Music is sometimes considered superfluous in the scheme of learning, I would contest that it’s crucial and that it adds depth, breadth, meaning, and life to learning.
This essay describes a part of one simple project enacted by a town and the beauty and the power of music as the connecting agent.
The short essay is followed by a quote to laminate and place on the wall or bulletin board as a reminder of the excellence of music.
The quote is followed by a few simple questions designed to examine “what music means to me.”
One Arts Infusion Collaborative seeks to create original music and poetry that support and enhance curricular content, celebrate holidays, stir imaginations, and help make meaningful connections to learning.
