Making mistakes simply means you are learning faster.
--West H. Agor
Constant effort and frequent mistakes are the stepping stones of genius.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
The many who achieves makes many mistakes, but he never makes the biggest mistake of all - doing nothing.
Never say, "Oops." Always say "Ah, interesting."
It's okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are our teacher - they help us to learn.
I have not failed. I've just found ten thousand ways that won't work.
After we read the quotes together I shared this Respect Pledge:
And then I invited all the students to cut out a geometric shape and write their name on the shape and add it to the Respect Pledge classroom mural at the back of the room. I like the fact that this activity gives us a chance to do a quick review of some geometry vocabulary while at the same time it illustrates that we are all different and unique and we come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
