As you start another school year, I’m sure you have a million and one things planned to do with your students. One thing you should definitely take the time to do is set goals with your classroom. They really help set a purpose for ALL of your students and help with building classroom community. I’ve posted about how I set classroom goals with my students HERE.
After writing that post, I have received many questions and requests about the posters I used. Today I want to show you how you can use these posters to help your students track the progress made towards their classroom goals.
First of all, there are several options of goal sheets for you to choose from (and more will be added in the future). No matter the design, all of the goal sheets have the same header to keep a uniform look, but you can edit each page to fit the needs of your classroom and students. That’s right – all pages are editable!
That means you can take a simple design with just a table, add your own clipart, and turn it into this:
Once posted in the classroom, students can help you color in one icon for each time they make progress towards their goal. By allowing students to participate in the process, they become more motivated to work together, thus building classroom community!
There are also pages with kid clipart already in place. You can edit the text, insert your own set of images (or table), and print.
All of the pages with kid clipart have a color and b/w version included. This means you can print these goal sheets on your favorite colors to make them POP! If your classroom chooses a goal that they will meet more than one time during the year, slide the goal sheet into a sheet protector or laminate. Students can color in the icons using dry erase marker. Once the goal is met, just wipe it clean and start again.
Another way you can track student progress is to let your students place stickers inside the grid boxes.
You can find all of these editable classroom goal sheets here. If you have any questions or requests for designs you’d like to see added to this file, feel free to email me or leave me a comment.

I love your classroom goals. I bought a set and I am using some for PBIS strategies in my 3rd grade classroom. My question to you is: If the students fill in one goal, then another goal, and so on, I’m assuming I reward them for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, goals met as we move along and then the final reward of “10 goals met.” Is that right?
Then, I was planning on resetting and starting over again once they’ve met the 10 goals. Does that sound okay or right?

You can choose to reward your students in whatever way you think is best. My class had four goals that they were working on simultaneously. After a goal was met, we celebrated with a reward and then started that goal sheet over again. Each time a goal was met we had a celebration or reward. However, if you have a series of goals, it also makes sense to reward for a goal met and then move on to the next goal in line. Then you can return to the first goal sheet once they have progressed through all 10 goals. I hope this answers your question, but if not, please feel free to contact me again.
Do you have any editable pages like these that can be used for individual student goals?
Storie Belden says
Yes, there is a section of editable pages within this resource that say “My Goal” at the top. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
