|Haley’s Goal Setting||
ACTIVITY ID: 22306
Breaking goals into manageable steps can help school-age children meet their goals. Review the steps below and think about other ways Haley could accomplish her goal.
My goal is: To become more physically active
I would like to complete my goal by this date: August 15th (today’s date is March 20th)
To make my goal easier, I will break it up into the following steps.
1. Attend the aerobic dance class twice a week.
2. Join a recreational basketball league.
My reward for completing this goal will be: A you-can-do-it certificate from my after-school program. And a gift certificate for cheer supplies.
I will check my progress 5 times throughout the timeline of my goal. I will record my progress here:
April 5 - I found an aerobics dance class and have attended twice weekly. I am looking for a basketball team to join.
May 10 - I recruited friends to play basketball twice a week.
June 7 - I dropped down to once a week for aerobics dance. My friends don't like basketball as much as me, so I found a league at the YWCA.
July 8 - I love my basketball league!
August 10 - Basketball is great, but only once a week. My aerobics dance class is really expensive and it's hard to travel there too. Need to think about another activity to add.
If I am having a hard time completing my goal, I will see if I can make changes. I will record my ideas here and if needed, set a new goal.
April 8 - I haven't found a basketball league--I wonder if my friends might want to play basketball too? I will ask them.
May 13 - Basketball is fun! We laugh a lot! But we don't play as often as I thought we would. I will continue to look for a league.
August 12 - I am so glad I joined my basketball league, but I need to drop aerobics and add another activity. I heard I can join the indoor pool at school for a small fee. I now plan to swim on Saturdays. I feel great about sticking to my goal!
