A continual focus in my classroom is helping my students build a growth mindset. One quote I've seen time and time again when it comes to mindset is "Mistakes are expected, respected, inspected, and corrected." I've seen this attributed to Jo Boaler and her "How to Learn Math" course.
This summer, I decided that I wanted to post this on the wall in my classroom as a reminder to students. I looked online to see if anybody else had already made a poster, but I didn't see anything that really caught my eye. Though, there might have been a great one that I just missed somehow... To be honest, I didn't spend all that much time looking.

I originally wanted the words at the bottom to be printed on two different colors of paper and be alternated, but I accidentally loaded two sheets of orange paper in my printer. So, orange it is!
Here are close-ups of the different elements:
As soon as I can get access to my classroom, I'll post a picture of them in action!
If you'd like to post these in your own classroom, I've uploaded the files here as an editable Publisher file and a non-editable PDF file. For the Publisher file, you'll need to also download these free fonts: Wellfleet and Caviar Dreams. If you don't want to deal with fonts, just download the PDF version.
