Learning How to Set Goals

Kindergarten Social emotional Activities: Learning How to Set Goals

What You Need:

 

What You Do:

  1. Ask your child, "What is one thing you accomplished today?" (i.e., building a tower, riding a bike, drawing something really cool)
  2. Explain to your child that whether they really thought about it or not, they set a goal for accomplishing this task today. Then, they achieved their goal.
  3. Ask, "How does it feel to complete a goal?"
  4. Tell them that sometimes it can be helpful to break our goal into smaller goals. Having a visual to check can be helpful, as well.
  5. Show your child the Goal Setting Chart worksheet, and read through its instructions.
  6. Together, create your own goal charts for the next week. Start off by modeling how to make the goal chart, and choose some goals you have for the next week. Then, work with your child as they create their own goal chart for the week. Spend some time finding the right goals to set, and make sure your child is generating their own goals.
  7. Decide how you will plan to check in on your goals and support each other.
  8. Find a prominent place in the home to keep your charts.
