I wanted to share with you how my kids set goals in my classroom. I've already shared my Seven Habits bulletin board, where my students chose one habit to focus on for the next month. However, in my classroom we set goals for math, reading, and writing every quarter. We set those goals based on data from past assessments, tests, and upcoming SMART goals that we will be working towards. I wanted to create a display for our goals that would allow students to show their progress as they reached their goals each quarter.
This is what my board used to look like, but I recently moved it to my two door cabinet (I forgot to take a picture of the cabinet before break-ugh).
Starting Out- This is when we just beginning to work on our goals.
Making Progress- We have collected data to show that we are beginning to meet our goals.
Met Goal- We have collected enough evidence to show that we have met our goal!
If you look up close, each kiddo is "holding" their goals and has a magnet attached to their back to allow them to move their goal as they master it. I had the kids hold up a sheet of poster board and took their picture, then laminated the pictures and attached them to the magnets. The goals are written on regular computer paper, and I keep them after each quarter in my students' files.
