In my classroom, I'm constantly reinventing the wheel to help my students in the goal setting process. The school district I am in has been using the Lucy Calkins Writing Program. This program has been producing wonderful writers!
It is so important to me that my kiddos understand what they need to work on as writers and why. So, I created this packet! Their are four headings...where you will find kid friendly goal setting phrases that children will transfer into their goal setting form.
The four heading include:
Handwriting and Spelling
This makes goal setting a breeze for our writers!!!
Included in this packet you will find a binder insert along with writing skills and a student goal setting form. (This goal setting form is handy in that one page allows for four weeks worth of goal setting at a glance.)
In my classroom, each child has a Writer's Workshop folder with this tool. I copy enough of the "goal setting" forms for a whole year's worth. What a wonderful opportunity for the students to see themselves grow as writers! It is also a great conversation piece when conferencing with individual students!
I hope you find this beneficial to your classroom curriculum!
Best Wishes ~
