Goal Setting - Parent 1



Your student is participating in classroom activities helping them learn what a goal is and how to write a plan to achieve the goal. We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home!

Definition: Goal setting is the process of deciding what you want to learn/accomplish and creating a plan to achieve it.

Here are just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • What is a goal?
  • Does meeting a goal automatically happen?
  • What is goal setting? Who do you know that does this?
  • How does breaking a goal into small steps help you achieve the goal?
  • Share some of your own goals, how you made a plan to achieve them and new goals that you want to make for yourself.


Think of one goal you would like to work on outside of school. Draw or write about it below detailing the step you would take to to reach the goal.
