Goal Setting & Student Leadership

With every new year comes lots of reflecting and goal setting. But who says goal setting is just for adults? Just like the grown ups, kiddos are more likely to succeed when they reflect on previous experiences, set goals, and track their progress.

 Student Goal Setting & Data Tracking

 Student leadership notebooks are the perfect way to hold your students accountable this year. They can reflect on previous quarters, set new quarterly goals, and track their academic progress throughout the months. This is also a great place for students to graph in their assessment data and monitor which areas they need growth in // which areas demonstrate strength. 
Once your kiddos are independent enough to understand their progress, they'll be able to share it with others through student-led conferences. These conferences are designed to encourage students to speak about their progress with their teachers, parents, and/or guardians. They'll be able to showcase work they're proud of, discuss academic and personal milestones, and elaborate on their goals. 
 Students can now track data virtually! This resource includes both printable AND digital versions of the Leadership Notebook.

 Whole Group Data Tracking 

Some students perform better when they're held accountable as a whole-group. Aside from individual leadership notebooks, I also incorporate data tracking posters in the classroom. We talk about taking ownership over our learning and how we can track assessment data as a whole. Each week, two student leaders help fill out the class average for our reading and math assessments. We also track our iReady lessons! 

 "Dear Future Self" Writing Prompt 

The 'Dear Future Self' writing prompt is great for a new year activity, but can also be used as an end of year writing prompt. Before writing, we discuss how we envision ourselves in ten years. We talk about personal and career goals. Students then write a letter to themselves which explains what they believe their life will look like in ten years. Some students go home and create a time capsule for their letters. They put keepsakes inside from the current year and store it away to open in ten years. (This can turn into a whole class new year activity as well!)

If you're looking to instill a student leadership culture in your classroom this year, these activities will help you get started.

Wishing you the best year ever!
