I have been setting goals and really focusing on it for the past few years! BUT this has made all the difference this year! Posting the Goals!
We read a few books about reaching dreams and setting goals! Check out Giraffes Can't Dance...all about not letting other discourage you from your dreams!
yes, they colored it and I had instant information about hand grip and pencil control!
We then talked about the goals for kindergarten and I hung those below the individual goals Now each time the students meet a goal, they sign the class goal sheet!
It keeps the goals visible and in the students' minds! It is so cool to see the names added each week!
I also have a comprehensive goal sheet in each Learner's Journal. The students color or circle when they meet a goal.
They are so excited to look in their journals and talk with each other about what they know!
I am amazed how much they are learning this year!
