The clip chart has been reimagined! Instead of focusing on student behaviors, how about focusing on building social, academic and self-management skills?
My Goal Setting Clip Chart encourages students to set and reflect on their daily goals. It is best used in an environment that encourages a growth mindset.
You will need:
-->light card stock,
-->a printer (preferably color),
-->access to a laminator,
-->clear packing tape,
Complete directions are included on the last page of both the digital product and preview.
To get started with your kids, focus on a new goal category each day. Since there are seventeen categories and three blank cards to add your own, you potentially could focus on a new skill every school day for a month! Pick the cards you want to teach.
Once you teach a goal and discuss possible "I can" goal statements, have students create a personal “I can” goal statement for that category. I prefer to use journals or laminated desk tags (tags on page 12), but weekly or monthly sheets are provided if your needs vary.
At the end of each day, teach students how to reflect on their experiences.
After all of your goal categories have been introduced (about a month), give students clips. When they come to class each day, they can clip their goal category and write their personal goal for the day. At the end of the day, allow time for reflection, tracking, and if possible, discussion and celebrations.
I highly recommend: helping individual students establish goals that will help them be successful at school, monitoring goals for reasonableness, providing your students with assistance scaffolding their goals, and celebrating growth!
This product compliments my Woodland Owl Desk Tags, which do have room for recording daily goals with a vis-à-vis marker.
I hope you enjoy!
