G is also for…Goals

G is for...Everybody needs goals – they are what help to motivate us to keep learning and improving. It’s important to make them realistic though, otherwise they can have the opposite effect and make you feel down if you don’t achieve them.

Try breaking them down into smaller steps, and thinking about what you need to do to achieve them. For example “learning my times tables” is a big goal. This could be broken down into “learning one new table every two weeks by practising for 5 minutes every day.” Improve my handwriting” is a big goal, but you could break this down into “Hold my pencil properly”, “make sure my letters sit on the line”” and “write more slowly so I can focus on my grip and letter formation.”

If you’re not sure how to break your goals into smaller steps, ask your family or teacher to help you.
