Setting goals

Set them up for success

Goal guidance


For some Terrific Kid participants, this may be their first experience with setting goals. Help them understand that setting SMART goals leads to success. Use this SMART goal presentation and worksheet to explain. Using this resource to assist students in establishing goals encourages peer mentoring and promotes development of important social and emotional skills

Working with grades K through 3


Young children may not understand how to set and achieve goals.  Try the Terrific Kids with a twist concept with young students.  This concept can also be used for older students.

Progress tracking


Visually note each accomplishment using one or more of these tracking systems. Print and distribute Terrific Kids punch cards to students participating in the program. Every time a student learns a character trait punch a hole next to that character trait. It's a fun way of tracking progress.
