What Are SMART Goals?


"SMART" is an acronym that leads your students through a step-by-step process of creating achievable goals.


Your students will become discouraged if a goal is too involved or unrealistic. SMART goals break down the goal-setting process into easy, manageable pieces that provide a scaffold to success!

Why Setting Goals Is Important

Many kids view learning skills as a passive activity that just happens with no effort or plan. This is called a fixed mindset. Reflection and SMART goal setting are two essential skills that promote and develop a growth mindset as your students mature.


A few of the more significant skills students will learn include:

  • Long-term vision

  • Short-term motivation

  • Reflection

  • Prioritization

  • Time management

  • Progress Tracking

When your kids are actively engaged in their learning, they are significantly more motivated to achieve a skill!
