Every now and then we come across a story that just has to be shared. Today I want to share a video about an enterprising 9-year-old who knows how to make good creative use of his time.
Have you heard this story? Watch this wonderful video.
What a wonderful story to share with your students and colleagues!

As teachers and parents, we know that when our children believe in themselves, they are happier, more persistent learners. The media is finally catching on with articles that highlight how students’ beliefs about what it means to be smart can make them into more successful, persevering learners.
Yesterday we shared a great article, “Kids Fail Less When They Know Failure is Part of Learning,” research that confirms the addage, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
Here is another useful article, What Kids Should Know About Their Own Brains.
After you read the article, go to Brainology to see how it works. The good people at Brainology (www.mindsetwords.com) have posted videos to get you started, as a parent or as a teacher, helping children become happy, engaged power-learners.
