Encourage your students of any age to think big and realize they are capable of anything they aspire!
From the creator:
“I created this using circle border shapes, letters/wording and frames cut on Cricut on cardstock that was purchased at JoAnn Fabrics and Michaels.
Mirrors are paper that was purchased on Amazon.”
How can you use this board with your students?
- Have students research different careers they might be interested in learning more about.
- Every Friday invite a community guest speaker into the classroom to talk about one of the careers students showed interest for and do some Q and A with the guest.
- Each day have students stop by the bulletin board and choose a statement to say out loud while looking at themselves in the mirror board. A great place to have the bulletin board is in a hallway or even the bathroom.

Believe in Yourself and Make it True!
- Begin by adding white bulletin board paper to the plain board.
- Next, add a simple straight black border all around the edges.
- After that. add the title “Mirror, Mirror on the wall” across the top edge and “There’s a future for us all!” across the bottom edge.
- In the remaining white space along the middle of the board, mount mirror board on cut out frame shape construction paper.
- Then, include your mirror titles “I see…a leader” “I see…a thinker” “I see…a creator” “I see… writer” and “I see…a student” above and below the different framed mirror pieces.
- Finally, cut out lots of various sized circles in multiple colors and staple around the black border edges, while adding a few in the middle of the board where needed too.
Growth mindset begins with believing in your abilities and knowing that you are capable. Daily positive affirmations are a great habit to instill in your students at any age. Even adults would benefit from this practice.
