This is a perfect activity to start the year with your new class (for us in the Southern Hemisphere!) or to start January off with some new resolutions, new goals for your students.
It is a positive activity to introduce each student to their classmates in a positive light – I like to…… I am good at…...’ and then identify their own goals.
If January sees your students returning from the Christmas Break into the same class, it is a wonderful opportunity to talk about how they are travelling with achieving their goal and whether or not they need to re-set or start a new goal.
This activity is also a vital tool in acquiring a quick overview of your students’ goals and forming strategies (such as grouping) that will help your class BELIEVE in themselves, PERSEVERE and finally SUCCEED in achieving their goal.
Included in the download is the colourful activity sheet, and Wall or Bulletin Board Heading to make your display inviting and interesting. I have also added some small labels that can be printed, cut out and stuck on their activity sheet as they achieve their goal.
Included is a NSW Foundation Print version for Australian teachers.
Enjoy the new Year with your class!
