I would recommend that you read Jo Boaler, “Mathematical Mindset.” She has some wonderful insights into helping kids break out of the fixed, “I’m bad at math” mindset. Her website, https://www.youcubed.org, has some great videos and activities that encourage students to accept their math-mindedness. You might also consider incorporating number talks as part of your lessons.
I hope this helps.
