“I can’t do this...yet!” and “My math brain just grew!” were just a few comments made during our math mindset activities in 4th grade. All students in the Lower Division spent the first two weeks of school building and strengthening their math mindsets. The purpose behind this important work was to establish a supportive math community that encourages all learners and to build upon the belief that everyone can do math at a high level.

Empathy—putting oneself in the shoes of another—is the ability that allows us to really get in touch with other people. The good news is that this important ability can be developed from an early age. In the Early Learning Center at Avenues, nursery and pre-K teachers are working with children to help them get in touch with their feelings and the feelings of others.
