What are the obstacles between me and my goal? If there were no barriers, you'd be there already! So, why aren't you? Perhaps you have to eat out a lot due to your job, and it's hard to eat healthy meals away from home. Maybe you were pushed into a sedentary lifestyle due to an injury. Likely, your schedule is such that it is very difficult to find time for exercise. Write down every obstacle you can think of, big or small. What is the primary constraint, the one barrier which if removed would immediately move me toward my goal? From all the barriers you identified in Step 3, pick the most significant one. This will help you prioritize how you go about reaching your goal.
Always be on the look out for tears of frustration, so as to all the child some break. No one learns well enough when confused. At this point both concentration and effective learning are lost. But if you are sure that the tears are merely excuses to skip the homework, pretend to abandon him with the worksheets and let him sweat it out! Reading is much more than fluency and word recognition. Reading fluently isn't enough. Students must fully understand the content they are reading. By learning and applying several different reading strategies, students will be able to obtain meaning from a wide variety of texts.
Who can help me reach this goal? This is a very important question, and your answer is also very important. An unachieved goal usually means we lack the self discipline to get there alone. So we need to lean on the discipline and accountability of another person. In some cases they might be partners who are moving toward a similar goal; in other cases they are mentors who are leading us and coaching us to go where they have already gone. Either way, this person is often the difference between success and failure in goal setting. What are all the steps I need to take to reach this goal? I like to simply write these things out as they come to mind, with no real regard for order or priority. Just get every logical step down so you can see exactly what is required. This is another reality check stage, but it can also be quite encouraging since your large goal has been reduced to bite-sized chunks!
Using some games in teaching math enable students to plan their strategies and moves. When they play, they tend to think of their moves which can be a very good exercise using their minds. They will also be able to use their knowledge of mathematics in winning the game. Playing also can help them cooperate with their classmates and helping them also to prepare for the real life situations. Worksheets for kids are widely used by parents in the form of monthly subscription based program,specially designed for nursery kids, LKG, HKG, 1st Grade and 2nd Grade levels. Following a plan with rewards introduced at various levels of completion can motivate the kids to complete their tasks and enjoy the learning process. Preschool worksheets for kids are a great way to reinforce the learning done in class for important subjects such as EVS, English, phonics, Maths, Life skills and GK.
Involve the Entire Body : No one likes to sit in class listening to a lecture for an hour. It gets boring and monotonous. To incorporate more fun into learning, try to engage the entire body. Have children move around the room. Play active review games. If you must lecture, have your students take a five minute break to stand up and wiggle their arms and legs. Fun doesn't have to be silly all the time. Simply moving around can make an otherwise boring lecture seem uplifting. Positive Reinforcement : One of the easiest ways to add some fun to your class is to use positive reinforcement. Students not only detest, but also dread classes that make them feel dumb. If your class is made to think they are excelling or performing well, they will be more likely to succeed. You will see smiles on their faces instead of looks of dread. The only way fun can be introduced into the school day is if the children feel comfortable letting loose. Giving positive reinforcement is the way to accomplish that goal.
What sacrifices do I need to make to reach this goal? Any substantial goal requires sacrifice. The more significant the goal, likely the more substantial the sacrifice. This is a reality check: Are you prepared to make the sacrifices necessary to reach your goal? What information or skills do I need if I am to achieve this goal? Most big goals require us to grow personally in knowledge or skill. If you can figure out where the gaps are from the outset, and begin to fill them, you will progress toward your goal very rapidly.
