How to help students set and reach their goals! Read all about it on!

At the beginning of each school year, I give each one of my students a yellow star and they write their names on the front. On the back, I ask them to write out three goals that they hope to achieve by June.  Some students’ goals are academic, some are social, some are extracurricular, and some are personal; however, all students clearly articulate that they have ideas in their minds regarding what they are hoping to achieve during that school year.  I then staple the stars up on my front bulletin board all around my banner that displays that quote, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars–Les Brown” (love that quote!).

Choosing a goal is pretty easy, but how can you help your students reach their goals?  Read our article on, where we provide you with a lesson plan and student worksheets to help them choose a goal and then develop an action plan in order to achieve it!
