Go Back to School With Hot New Goal Setting Templates!

Do you start the school year with goal-setting activities? If not, we encourage you to try it. Goal setting makes a superb back-to-school starter as it gives students a sense of direction and purpose, helping them understand what they are working towards and why it matters. It enhances motivation by giving them clear targets to shoot for and a feeling of accomplishment when they achieve these goals. Additionally, setting goals helps students develop important life skills such as planning, time management, and problem-solving. It also promotes a growth mindset, teaching them to view challenges as opportunities for growth.

We’ve created a fun printable thermometer goal-setting template that your students can complete and colour as they progress toward their goal, as well as a whole-class version that can be used as a group motivator.
