I love using a Behavior Goal Wall in my classroom! It is so effective for reinforcing positive behaviors each day and reminding students of what they need to work on and holds them accountable. This is the third year I have used a Behavior Goal Wall and it has become a non-negotiable in my classroom!
It is also a great visual and reminder for your aides to keep everyone on the same page and a great reminder for me of the goals and behaviors I am reinforcing each day!
For my student that is non-verbal, I am able to place his goals on his iPad in Proloquo 2 Go, so that he can also state his daily goals.
Here are two specific examples currently being used in my classroom!
Stay in my space.
Keep lids on markers.
Keep chair legs on floor.
Use my words.
Share with others.
Get right to work.
Take responsibility for my actions.
Follow my schedule.
I even encourage them to set goals for me, but they rarely have any. LOL! I must be doing good! HaHa! I tell them that even I, have goals that I need to work on in my life. And that everyone always has areas that they can improve in.
This has been an effective tool in my classroom the last 3 years! It seems super simple, and is, but the difference it makes is amazing! I love how it not only holds students accountable for their own behaviors, but also provides a visual for them, my aides, and myself!
Try it in your classroom! It doesn't take much to implement this! You can simply write your students' goals on a sheet of paper and hang them on the wall! But if you want something a little more colorful like my display, you can take a look at my editable Class Goals Display below!
Holding your students accountable and having them set goals for themselves is so important! What are some ways that your students participate in goal setting and their own learning?
