I saw this great Goal Getter display by Lessons with Laughter and knew that I had to recreate it. It was inspired by her trip to the Ron Clark Academy which I am dying to get to go to!! At least this way I could bring a little bit of RCA to me. Might I add that our superintendent even stopped to read them- that’s how much of an impression they made!
These only took us one day to make – I did the typing but honestly this would make a great computer project – just adding shapes, changing fonts, glow effects – all activities the kids would like to do and can do. Goal setting for students is easy with the digital download below!
I showed them one I made as an example then told them the requirements – I just put it on the board:
Don’t make fun of mine – if I wouldn’t get in such a darn hurry I’d look better. I was a hot mess this day. Plus I need to be accountable too!
We just Googled quotes about our word. Like “hardworking quotes” “quotes about dreams” etc… it worked well for us. I only have 2 ipads and 2 computers so I can monitor a small group at a time to look at quotes. We picked ones that spoke to their hearts – since this is language they are familiar with and they did such a FANTASTIC job!! I was so impressed!
After all the writing I just uploaded into Powerpoint. Put the goal on the black shape, added the one word, and the goal – then just played with fonts.
Be sure to scroll down to get your EDITABLE copy – easy to add text boxes on! Goal setting for students is easy with the printable! Print on colored paper or to it digitally and back with colored paper for a fun and EASY goal getting bulletin board display.
I cannot believe how well they turned out – I plan on having them reflect on their goals before the next conference as a piece to bring up with parents. I already added this to my plans for next year – that is how much I love it! Hoping to do one a quarter next year or at least a couple and have them as a keepsake.
I know many schools are focused on goals and I didn’t make them pick a school goal since I want them to think about anything in their life they want to work for but you could certainly make it an academic goal.
