Goal setting is essential and a proven effective practice for Guided Math. I have created goals based on CGI counting strategies and kindergarten math curriculum that support their mathematical growth. I observe and teach small group lessons. Upon seeing where the student needs to develop, we add a goal to their math book. This is a visual reminder of what they need to be working or what tool they need to be using to support their current skill level. You can print on plain paper or on sticky notes for simpler use.
