Goals - Speaking and Listening (Lower Primary)

PDF, Excel, Word | 6 pages|Grades: F - 3

Print, laminate and stick a small magnetic strip to the back so they can be stuck on to your classroom whiteboard.

Use the PDF Checklist to track all of the goals for each student.

The Excel Spreadsheet can be used to track the goals for all of your students. In the Excel spreadsheet, you can type a ‘y’ to get a green box that indicates the student has achieved that goal, an ‘n’ to indicate the child has not achieved the goal yet and a ‘w’ to indicate that the child is working toward achieving the goal.

Hi Carmen, thank you for your comment. Can you provide a little more information about how you intend to use the spreadsheet? If you are happy to record your data on a paper copy, it would be possible for us to create a PDF of the spreadsheet which could then be printed. However, if you wish to enter data electronically, you would need to be able to access some kind of spreadsheet program e.g. Google Sheets. If you need any more guidance, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]
