Beginning of the new year (as in: do these in January!) goals...LOVE! It's always helpful to revisit goals often and set new ones if needed. Most students are asked to set goals at the beginning of the school year, but many are not asked to revisit and revise those goals in a meaningful way throughout the year.

They wrote their hopes and dreams in Fun new years activity! balloons and attached a picture of themselves soaring with them. Make "Oh the Places You Go" Bulletin Board!
This teachers theme was "Carried away with excitement for the new school year." They wrote their hopes and dreams in balloons and attached a picture of them soaring with them.
Carried Away--This teacher used these as informal assessments in a lesson about prefixes and suffixes. However, I like the idea (inspired by another Pinner) of students writing their hopes and dreams in balloons and attaching a picture of themselves soaring with them. Another Pinner had the idea to create an "Oh the Places You Go" Bulletin Board with them! Overall a fun, engaging way to get students to really think about their learning goals for the future!
They wrote their hopes and dreams in balloons and attached a picture of themselves soaring with them. Make "Oh the Places You Go" Bulletin Board! Would be great for the goal setting unit!!!!
