Student Instructions

Welcome to a new school year and a fresh start! 😃 Now is a good time to set a GOAL for how you want to grow this year. 1. One way to set goals is to BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND. Picture yourself at the end of the year. How would you like to grow as a person and be different than you are now? EX: Would you like to be more friendly? More organized? More helpful to others? 2. Brainstorm actions you can start taking today to make it to your GOAL for growth. Draw pictures of yourself doing those things, or make a list. EX: If you want to be more friendly, you might try to say hello to at least one student you don't already know every day. Or invite someone you don't know very well to sit with you at lunch once a week. Think of one to three things to do to achieve your goal. 3. After brainstorming, select any Seesaw tool to post about your GOAL to your journal. Be sure to record your voice explaining your GOAL and the specific actions you will take to meet your GOAL. Good luck!
