Have you begun thinking about plans for the new year? Maybe you’re focusing on organization or weight loss, or perhaps you’re shooting for increasing exercise? No matter what, goal setting is an important skill for teachers and for students. In this post, I’ll share books with an inspirational and motivational message as well as activities and ideas you can incorporate into your goal setting plans.
BOOKS FOR INSPIRATION:
As we gear up for the new year, it’s the perfect time to check on progress for the first half of the year, look for places to improve, and set new goals and plans for the remainder of the year. Children need to have plans.
There are so many great books about setting and making goals. Out of this list, my all time favorite has to be the Grace series by Mary Hoffman. I just love Amazing Grace. Grace is one gal who will not listen to the word, “No!” She has her eyes set on being Peter Pan in the class play. Such a great example of making a goal and sticking to it with strength and determination.
Finally, I love Wilma Unlimited for overcoming challenges and perseverance.
