Are you looking to make student SMART goal setting a focus in your classroom during back-to-school season? This print-and-go set is perfect to help you kick off the school year or use any time with the easy-to-use templates, activities, and forms included.

Students will be creating their own learning goals. This goal setting and student tracking set will have your students expressing their hopes and goals for the upcoming year and create ways to help them meet those goals, too.

This pack has everything you need to have your students reflect on themselves as learners and set appropriate goals. Have your students revisit these goals periodically to see if their goals have been met through self-progress monitoring.

Student brainstorming activities, goal-setting templates, checklists, and self-monitoring reflections are included.

Not sure how to get started with SMART goal setting? Model goal forms are included to help you and your students see a written goal example!
