In my first grade class, we send home Monthly Student Goal sheets to build student awareness, set academic expectations, and keep parents informed about what we are learning. This useful and informative form of communication is a great highlight for Quality Review visits and effective as a parent engagement resource. Each goal sheet is given out at the beginning of each month from September through June. Academic goals are set with/for students in Reading workshop, Writing workshop, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Students/Parents can select 1 or more goals to focus on reaching for each subject during each month. Goal sheets can be kept in student folders, stapled into notebooks, filed into portfolios, or kept at home. Goals can be modified as needed on this Word document to align with your own grade, pacing, and curriculum needs. Suitable for Grades 1 and up with your own modified goals each month. Some examples of goals/concepts to be reached/learned for each subject in this 10 page packet is as follows: MATH: counting, time, skip counting, tally marks, patterns, addition, subtraction, shapes, fact families, money, etc. SCIENCE: senses, living/nonliving, food chain, matter, heat, light, sound, seasons, weather, etc. SOCIAL STUDIES: community, family, history, citizenship, maps, etc. READING and WRITING align with my Curriculum Map and Minilessons found in this store. I hope you find this useful and that parents appreciate the information so that we can build a strong home-school partnership to help our students.
