Counseling Wisdom offers #6 in a series of Character Education Mini Booklets. Presented to students in January, as everyone is thinking about resolutions and new beginnings. This packet will help 3rd-5th grade students understand and apply the practice of perseverance in their own lives. Students will learn the language of goal setting including short term, intermediate and long term goals. Examples are given in S.M.A.R.T. goal form for each type of goal. Students also will learn about educational and personal goal setting. Black line and color S.M.A.R.T. goal activity sheets are included along with the mini booklet. January is a great time to introduce this character trait as we all think of goal setting and resolutions at the beginning of a new year. Enjoy the revised version, I have corrected and enhanced this activity.
