Goal setting

I like to begin the school year with helping my students to set some goals. As the year progresses, we do more and more goal setting and continue our discussions about goals and objectives until all of my students have internalized their own academic goals and breathe it everyday.

This year, we begin with a quickwrite about what they want to learn in third grade. It was the very first thing they did, before I even introduced myself as their teacher.

To make it interesting, we put it in the form of a peek over book. The kids love it.
