“THE PLAN” – UNDERSTANDING THE POWER OF GOAL SETTING FOR KIDS
“Life can get overwhelming for the young mind of children. The most important step to learning how to be a person of perseverance is to understand why we need to be organized with our goals.” (Excerpt from Multicultural Kids Blog)
What does goal setting teach?
Building Dreams has a feature to help with goal setting and problem-solving. This feature is called My Plans. The My Plans feature helps students identify, create, and track a goal or problem. Students can share their plans with their guardians, as well as teachers, to help them track these goals. Most importantly, it walks through and models to students what effective goal setting looks like, while encouraging them to persevere.
