Target Obstacles Plan Goals

While practicing Responsibility this month, 5th and 6th grade students will be focusing on goal-setting. Students will practice setting an important target to work towards, anticipating obstacles, and making a plan. They will do this by using TOP Goals. TOP stands for…

 ● Target: Visualize your goal and think about why this is important for you.

 ● Obstacles: Plan for challenges. If _____ gets in the way, then what can you do?

● Plan: Create 3 action steps you will need to take to complete your goal.

This technique helps students be more Responsible by clarifying different types of goals and taking thoughtful actions to achieve them.
