Lesson Plans & Activities
As the parent of a child with ADHD and other difficulties, I especially love that this book gives some real basic but effective strategies for helping to maintain attention. She teaches kids to do things like keep their space organized and break large tasks down into smaller chunks. It is also great how the Ninja in the book takes ownership of his difficulties with focus and takes steps to help himself. I love how the Ninja books always encourage kids to be their best selves without ever talking down to them about challenges and struggles. Overall, this is an awesome title that should be in every child's library!
Growth Mindset Box Set does not disappoint, and is just the message of grit--what we called "stick-to-it-tiv-ity" when I was a kid--that I've been working to instill in my curious little explorer.
