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.


The importance of goal setting with kids has been well documented. A few of the more significant benefits include:

  • Promoting brain development by recalling situations, emotions, and facts

  • Developing analyzation skills

  • Fostering a growth mindset

  • Encouraging active participation in academic, social, and emotional growth

  • Promoting effort, practice, hard work, persistence, and self-confidence

When your kids are actively engaged in their learning,

they are significantly more motivated to achieve a skill!

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!
