My 4th and 5th grade gifted students began pull-out classes this week. Our first order of business was to set goals for the new school year. We began with a pep talk from Kid President, who inspires us to learn, teach, change the world, and BE MORE AWESOME!

After watching Kid President, we examined some of the ways we are awesome. As you can imagine, many pieces of paper were needed. :-) We then looked at ways we could be "more awesome." I shared my personal goals for a more awesome year with the students and modeled how I tried to create goals that were meaningful, specific, relevant, and realistic. (Not exactly "SMART" goals, but in the same spirit.) Using a "Be More Awesome" pennant, each student brainstormed goals for the first nine weeks.
