Do you have a big assessment coming up? Need to motivate your students to do their best? A growth party is the perfect way to educate students on the power of setting goals and giving them something to work towards. Use these sheets to discuss past progress with each student and set a goal for your next test or assessment. Have them think about how they are going to reach the goal! Will they need to show more work?
Take their time? Or check their answers? After they complete the test, have a conference with each child about if they reached their goal or not. Students that did reach their goals can attend the GROWTH PARTY! This can be any sort of celebration you want. Make it something they will enjoy. Dance party, cookie decorating, extra recess, mystery reader, etc. Celebrate all of the victories, big and small. This resource helps students understand that growth is growth, and meeting a goal should be considered a huge accomplishment! Enjoy and let me know what you think! Please let me know if you have questions. Keep teaching like you mean it!
