And I'm glad to have another opportunity to put my S.M.A.R.T goal training to use!
I will improve my health by losing 10 pounds by March 31st. I will achieve this by tracking what I eat daily through Weight Watchers online. I will also walk, do yoga, or work out on my elliptical machine for at least 30 minutes 3 times each week. (And if any of you do WW online - I'd love to join a community group with you to encourage each other!)
(Since I have three blogs that I'm involved with, I'll share my goals for each of them....)
Mrs. Allen's 5th Grade Files:
3-6 Free Resources:
I will share at least one resource per week and link it to Pinterest.
I will share at least 1 recipe per week - and at least one original per month with recipe card. I will also calculate and include the Weight Watchers' points for each recipe or serving.
I will achieve these blogging goals by taking more pictures during the week and editing them each night so they are ready to be included in a post. I will also write posts Thursday and Friday evenings when I have the most energy and then schedule them throughout the week. I will carve out more time for writing by limiting Netflix viewing and App playing to rewards once I have completed a post.
Well....it's out there now - I can't take it back so you'll all be witnesses to how I'm faring!
I also think it's extremely important for children to set their own goals - both personal and academic. When we go back to school this Wednesday, this will be their first writing journal prompt:
You can download a copy here in Word format for free and change the examples to match the experiences of your students and grade level.
