After learning about several charities, you and your group are tasked with selecting the one you deem as having the biggest impact. The difficulties involved in this task will demonstrate that you can’t necessarily rely on your intuition to choose a charity, and will give your group a taste of how evidence and analysis can, and should, be used to select a charity. This is a great stand-alone level and an excellent introduction to high-impact charity.

Social Skills Task Cards for Developing a Positive Mindset

Social Skills Task Cards for Developing a Positive Mindset

Encourage a growth mindset by helping children to think positively, be flexible and provide them with problem-solving strategies and solutions that help them to cope with the myriad of situations and emotions that life presents, with these fun task cards. These printable task cards are a terrific way to actively practise the growth mindset directly within the IB PYP social skills. The task cards can be used in a variety of ways that encourage the children to reflect and think positively of themselves and others in various social settings that are easily relatable to them. They are asked to reflect on social situations that present doubt, possible antagonism, confidence issues and other difficulties. As you help the children with these social skills in a safe, familiar environment, it will greatly benefit them throughout school and particularly as they approach the IB PYP Exhibition. A great review activity! Differentiated for 3rd-5th grade. The pink cards are more challenging text. UK and USA spelling. Suggestions: Whole class - sitting in circle, each child will have a card to read aloud and then share their opinion. These can be discussed as you go around the circle. Small groups- Place a pile of cards face down in the middle of the group. Each person will take a turn to read a card, act out or offer their opinion and then those can be discussed within the group. Independent work - Each child can work with a few cards and write or draw how they would solve the social problems presented on the task cards. You will find 32 task cards ready to print and go. You can find many more tools for implementing the IB PYP within my store and on my blog. You may like my posters explaining the Transdisciplinary Skills . There are separate sets for big kids and also for younger kids. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.PYPteachingtools.com
