Teaching Personal Goal Setting

So it is one of my goals this year to really get my kiddos thinking about personal responsibility and setting goals. I admit I wasn't that great at it last year. I want my students to be motivated to go above and beyond and really challenge themselves.

So I am really excited to show you all what I have created to help me with that!

This is my Classroom goal setting pack. 

Basically it is a set of 22 classroom goals. The students choose one that they feel they need to work on and fill out a weekly tracking sheet. The student's rate themselves daily and there is a place for either the student to write more comments, or the teacher to write more comments. 

You can use this whole class or just for those students you think need a little extra help. I am going to use it whole class. 

I think I'm also going to send the sheet home with the students on friday with their work as well. I haven't decided if I will tie it into classroom rewards or not yet. I think I'll see how it goes first. 

I think this is really going to help my students recognize where they need help, challenge themselves, set and achieve goals, feel a sense of pride, and really start building that intrinsic motivation we all want them to have. 

I am selling this is my TPT store for $2.00, so it's a good deal.  However, if anyone is interested I will give it away for free to the first two people to leave me a comment with their email address! FREE! YAY!

If you win this, or purchase it, let me know what you think! I would love feedback, especially if you have some other goal ideas you think I should add. 

Finally, I am just 15 people away from the big 50 (followers that is) I am definitely going to do a giveaway once I get there. So if you are not a follower yet, click that button over to the side :-)

Happy Wednesday everyone! I think it's Wednesday at least, I don't know where the time is going!
