At the beginning of the year, we like to set goals for learning! We know every student loves to learn, whether it is in Math, Science, Social Studies, or even writing.
Setting goals sets the stage for a student’s curiosity and ambition. In Language Arts, our Second Graders set goals for the 2020-2021 school year. We started our lesson brainstorming what a goal is. We then had each student give us examples of a goal. which we wrote on our whiteboard.
Every Second Grader wrote a goal in their journal and then illustrated the page. The students made sure that each sentence started with a capital letter and ended with a period.
I have to say we have quite a few ambitious learners!
