IMWAYR: Unstoppable Me! and No Excuses!

Monday Linky from Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers!

I just read Unstoppable Me : 10 Ways to Soar through Life by Dr. Wayne Dyer. It's set up with a poem about a life skill and a real life example. 
The 10 ways are:
1.You’re great, no matter what!
2.Persistence pays off!
3.Welcome the Unknown
4.You have a choice
5.Farewell to Worry
6.Peace Begins with You
7.Enjoy the Here-and-Now
8.Healthy Me!
9.Creativity is Key!

10.What Can You Give?

Unstoppable Me with Thinking Routines!  I created this product to use with this book. You can find it in my TPT store. 
This product takes thinking routines (from Making Thinking Visible) and uses them in conjunction with Unstoppable Me! Thinking Routines are routines that build classroom culture. They are used to introduce and explore ideas, synthesize and organize thinking and digging deeper into ideas.
This unit is set up with a lesson for each poem. Each lesson incorporates a different thinking routine from Making Thinking Visible by Ritchhart, Church and Morrison. It begins with teacher directions. Then, there are two sheets. One is in color to project for the students during the explanation. The other is in blackline to copy for students.
I love lessons that make students think deep and consider why. You’ll see that some lessons were pegged closely to the material and others are more general so that you could use them with different lessons.

A complimentary book and great for teaching growth mindset is No Excuses by the same author.  This book is written in a story format.  It's about not letting excuses get in your way!

Check out these two books.  I prefer to buy them in Kindle format for the classroom.  That way I can project it on the screen and I can upload it to the students' kindles.
