Today we did a reading comprehension story about Helen Keller. We watched a few videos about her life story, her youth and her teacher, Anne Sullivan. We also watched some documentaries about her amazing humanitarian accomplishments as an adult. Connecting this to our learning about Growth Mindset, we enjoyed seeing Helen Keller awaken from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset as she learnt her first word, water.
I encourage you as a family to talk about growth mindset and explore the life of this amazing woman. The movie, The Miracle Worker, is amazing.
