New Kids = New Goals

After spring break I will be getting a fresh batch of kids and it will be the start of the 4th quarter.  I can't believe how fast this year has gone by.   I plan of having my students complete the following activity as a kick off to the class.

Materials - colored paper, markers, crayons

  • I discussed responsibility with the class and brainstorm ideas of what responsibility means (areas of discussion could include school, home, with friends, teams, or clubs)
  • Divide paper into 4 sections. Students will write what they are responsible for doing in each section.
Possible discussion questions:
What would happen if you did not follow through with your responsibilities?
What would your parents think? Friends? Coaches? You?
Are there any consequences for not completing your responsibilities?
This lesson could be adapted to many topics including trust, respect, ect.
