Goal Setting is the process of thinking about what you want to happen in your life, and making a plan for how to make it a reality. When we set goals for ourselves, we have a clear vision in mind and make a specific plan for how it can happen. Research has shown that SMART goals are important. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-based. Setting SMART goals can help students achieve their dreams, and be in control of their future. Below you will find resources you can use at home to help teach this important skill to your child.
