At the beginning of every trimester I like the kids to come up with new goals. We hang them on the sides of our room from the ceiling using pipe cleaners and paper clips. Well it's not the beginning of the trimester, but it is halfway through the school year, so we made some New Year's resolutions to stay focused. The students created the big stars themselves using construction paper, some patience, and a ruler. After drawing the lines, we cut away the outside pieces to form the shape.
Inside the star, the students had to write their name in the smallest section at the top, then had to think of 5 things they want to work on in the coming weeks. I gave them some examples. :)
Did your students make new goals? It's always nice to look ahead.
