Reach for the STARS
Students trace their hand and arms (up to the elbow) on colorful paper.
On each finger write a goal and or a daily commitment.
On the palm add your name and an symbolic image.
On the arm be as creative as you'd like.
Use a black background. Students may design a variety of star sizes and shapes on yellow paper. Display a moon in the corner. Towards the bottom of the board put all hands/arm in a row and before you know it all of the students will be reaching for the stars.
It is important to have students frequently revisit their goals and daily commitments.
