Goal setting is important for students. Goal setting creates the foundation for academic success. What is the best way to create goals that will enhance your academic success? Incorporate SMART goals! The act of creating SMART goals not only gets you closer to your goals but it also enhances your ability to overcome challenges that you encounter. SMART goals build resiliency, self-confidence and self- belief. Additional benefits of SMART goal setting includes improved executive function skills such as organization, prioritization, initiation and responsibility! There are so many benefits to incorporating SMART goals into your student’s daily regimen.
SMART stands for specific, measurable, action plan, realistic & timely. Teaching students how to create SMART goals will give students the tools that they will need to be successful in school and beyond. Here are some tips to remember when you are creating your SMART goals:
A: Action Plan
Work together with your child to create SMART goals. I highly recommend that you help your child with their SMART goal planning. Once you have created your SMART goals post them so you can see them on a daily basis. Good luck and let us know how you are making out with your SMART goal planning!
