Taking time to have students make goals is so important but I have seen "get good grades" as a goal despite my efforts for too long! This year, we will work on SPECIFIC goal setting with a fun activity!
First, students will sort goal strips into "General" and "Specific" categories.
Then, they will match up the general goals with the matching specific ones.
Finally, they will choose a goal from the activity or from their own ideas and write down a specific goal on a piece of "toast" so they can "toast" the New Year!
I hope your students enjoy this little freebie to gently help them get back into the swing of things! :)
Let's keep in touch!
