T4, W1 - Goal Setting

This week's topic for Kidsedchatnz is GOAL SETTING! I thought this would be an appropriate topic as a lot of classes set goals to kick off the term!

So before you take part in this week's Kidsedchatnz I want you to try and complete the following tasks prior to the chat. If you can't complete the tasks that's fine, you will still be able to take part in the chat.
1) Design a life poster showing how you would like your life to look in 20 years! You could cut pictures out of magazines or find pictures on the internet.

2) Write some goals for this term. Make sure they are smart goals and make sure you share them! Watch the video below to help you!

3) Make a poster with an inspiration quote about Goal Setting. You can write your own or find one on the internet.

4) Read this poem in class. Discuss its meaning and if you get time maybe write a Goal Setting poem of your own!

"He's an overnight success."
"She's an instant star."
If that's what you are waiting for,
then you won't get very far.

Behind each truly famous person
lies work, for years not hours.
They've worked towards their goals
through thorns as well as flowers.

And every time they failed
they got up and tried once more, 
or found a different pathway
to reach that distant shore. 

So work out what your goals are, 
plan the steps you need to take. 
Feel proud of your achievements,
sacrifices that you make.

We cannot all be famous,
more successful than the rest.
But, we all can feel the joy
of having done our best.
