What educators are saying

I love this resource! Making kids accountable and aware is so important. Thanks for a resource that easily supports this!
Great resource for goal setting with students and I used as a spring board on lessons for goal setting.


Setting goals can help make students more successful, and academic goals anytime during the school year are no exception! These goal setting templates, worksheets, and data-tracking graphs make it easy for 1st-5th grade students. The EDITABLE tracking graphs let them watch their progress as they work towards literacy goals like reading, writing, and Accelerated Reader; or hone their math skills.

Making goal setting fun and rewarding is essential too! With certificates of achievement included to mark progress, goal setting has never been easier. Improve student learning outcomes with these goal setting tools today!



WHAT’S INCLUDED in this goal setting template resource:

◼️ Student Bubble Maps: To prepare for goal setting, students can brainstorm descriptors of the type of student they want to be. Keep in their goal-setting notebook to remind them of their vision.

◼️ Goal Planning Templates with Sentence Stems: Reading, Writing, Math, AR, and Math Facts worksheets are perfect for beginning goal setters. These worksheets give students the essential steps to setting SMART goals.

◼️ Goal Planning Templates without Sentence Stems: Reading, Writing, Math, AR, and Math Facts worksheets for students who don’t need extra assistance writing SMART goals.

◼️ Data Tracking Bar Graphs: Reading, Writing, Math, AR Reading Points, and Math Facts bar graphs for tracking progress in both 4-week and 9-week increments.

◼️ Editable Data Tracking Bar Graphs: Now includes editable bar graphs for student differentiation.

◼️ Goal Achievement Certificates: Fun and cute goal certificates for Reading, Writing, Math, AR Reading Points, and Math Facts goal achievement. Help your students celebrate their success and promote a growth mindset!



✔ Encourages and rewards students for their hard work

✔ Makes goal setting and progress monitoring fun and easy

✔ Creates a positive classroom environment



Use this resource alongside lessons promoting a learner growth mindset. As you teach your students how to grow their brains, show them how to set goals in specific subject areas. Students can use the goal planning worksheets that include sentence stems when they begin setting goals. This helps them understand each part of the SMART goal steps. Later, they will be able to write their own goals without help.

Keeping SMART goals and progress monitoring bar graphs in student notebooks will help them stay organized and current with their data.

I love celebrating when students reach goals, no matter how big or small, with certificates. They love to take them home and show their parents their successes!


This goal setting resource makes it easy to scaffold and differentiate with any group of students. With open-ended goal possibilities, students can work within their area and level of need. The worksheets have sentence starters for students who need extra help writing goals. The 4-week and 9-week graphs make progress monitoring flexible for each learner’s needs.
