This adorable incentive kit will get your students SO excited to work hard and reach their 1st grade math and language arts goals!
Included is everything you see in the photos: goal chart, awards, parent letter and poster. The products are editable and can be translated to another language or can be edited to meet a different goal.
All 20 goals I picked for this chart are First Grade Common Core Standards.
Please note that this incentive chart does not cover all of the first grade standards, rather I chose 20 big reading, math and writing goals I want all my students to master before leaving for second grade.
Each students gets a goal sheet proudly displayed on our classroom bulletin board with their name on it. When they master a skill, they get to color the star in that box, and I write them an award that they can take it home to show their families.
I also send a chart home to keep on the fridge so they can color this star too when they bring an award home. This keeps the parents aware of which standards their child has mastered, and children are THRILLED to watch their stars slowly fill in. It is a wonderful incentive tool for them to work hard and master these skills!
Getting parents on board and aware of the standards their children are expected to master is incredibly important! I include an editable letter (in both color and BW) that explains how this goal sheet and award system works.
These goal sheets and awards can be implemented at any time in the year!

I use this letter to explain the goal chart and incentive awards to parents. I feel that it is so important to keep parents in the loop of what skills their child should be mastering in first grade. Students are so proud to earn awards, color their stars and take it home to show their families. You can use the letter as is, or edit to say what you like!
Basic editing directions are included for the editable PDF files.
Open the PDF in Adobe 11 Reader to edit.
Edit and print as many times as you like!
Pictures cannot be added to the editable PDFs.
I also included JPG versions that can be dragged into an editing program of your choosing. I do not include directions for doing this, so please be sure you know how to use these kinds of programs. You can add your own text boxes and pictures on top of the JPG files in most programs!
Getting students excited to meet their goals and master new skills will make your job so much easier! This is a fun, easy kit to implement into your classroom.
