Around St. Patrick’s Day, the end of the school year seems to be just around the corner. Unfortunately, many students have a decline in effort around this time as well. Why not help remind students of their goals so that they can finish the year with success? Students could set goals that would help them to graduate from the current school year (completing homework, studying for tests, etc.)
Students could also set goals for the following school year OR for their futures (involving college, their future careers, their future families, etc.)
I have purposely made the directions very general so that you may have them set the sort of goals you prefer. They brainstorm their goals first as well as what it would take to achieve them on the sheet provided. They can then complete the poster sheet by writing a goal in each gold coin and adding color and decoration. These make a very nice classroom or bulletin board display for St. Patrick’s Day.
