Lesson 1: The Right Goal for Me

In this lesson, students will learn how to set a goal that's right for them. A goal that's right for someone is specific, challenging, doable, and motivating.


You Can Try This at Home

Ask your child what their goal is and how they know it’s right for them. Encourage them to describe why it’s motivating to them. Talk to your child about a goal you reached in the past and why you chose that goal.

 

Lesson 2: My Plan

In this lesson, students will learn how to make an effective plan to reach a goal.


You Can Try This at Home

Ask your child about their plan to reach their goal. What will they do? What will they need? Talk to them about how you can support them as they work toward their goal.

 

Lesson 3: Changing My Plan

In this lesson, students will learn how to evaluate their progress toward a goal and change their plan accordingly.


You Can Try This at Home

Talk to your child about the progress they’ve made toward their goal. Ask them if they’ve run into any roadblocks, and offer to help them think about how to keep moving forward.

 

Lesson 4: Time to Reflect

In this lesson, students will learn how to reflect on their experience working toward a goal.


You Can Try This at Home

Ask your child to tell you about their goal-setting journey, including what worked, what didn’t work, and what they could do next time. Tell your child about a goal that you set and worked toward. What worked, what didn’t work, and what did you learn?

 

Lesson 5: My 10-Minute Goal

In this lesson, students will apply the full goal-setting process they learned in this unit to work toward a 10-minute goal of their choice.


You Can Try This at Home

Ask your child about the goal-setting process they learned in this unit and why it’s important. Encourage them to set a new short-term goal that's right for them and to follow the process they learned. Check in along the way to see how it’s going.
