Help Your Child Make Goals for The School Year

Aug 4, 2022 | Homeschool | 46 comments

Before school starts each new year we take some time to sit down with our kids and help them create their own goals for the year. First, discuss your child’s interests in extracurricular activities, and the talents they want to develop. This discussion works best when your child shares their dreams and interests. Let them drive the conversation with their goals instead of choosing for them—next help your child make goals for the school year based on their interests from your discussion.

Goal setting for the school year

  1. First, we like to have a BIG discussion as a family of fun things that interest each of us. The kids discuss subjects like; science, art, sports, music, basically, anything that interests them. We write down a lot of IDEAS of what’s interesting!
  2. Second, together Create Goals for each of the talents they are focusing on. These could be learning to play a specific music piece by a certain time. Getting more consistent with making shots in basketball, etc… Write down the SPECIFICS of the goal.
  3. Third, help your child Create Action Steps. Think about, how often will they work on this talent, is there something specific they are focusing on? Does their end goal need to be broken down into multiple smaller goals? Ex; practice sport 3x a week. Find a Course that encourages & supports the Goal.
  4. Fourth, FOLLOW-UP! Now that you have action steps, pick a time in the future to review their progress. This could be done weekly or monthly. Add that meeting to your calendar so you don’t forget to follow up and see where they may need help. I tend to forget things that are not on my schedule. So if you are like me, this last step is very important.

Helping your children develop their talents

Are you all out of ideas and want a few new ones? Here are a few ideas for new talents to develop!

Music – learn an instrument, sing, learn to sight read,

Arts – painting, pottery, digital drawing, animation, origami, photography, scrapbooking, photo editing, movie editing,

sports – pickleball, pool, tennis, soccer, dancing, swimming.

Cooking – grilling, baking, cake and cupcake decorating, bread making, cooking meats, soup making (this is perfect for fall/winter because your love having a nice warm soup on those cold days)

Gardening – growing fresh herbs, flower garden, fruits, and vegetable garden, growing house plants

Now it’s time to set some goals!

I hope this helps you with this upcoming new school year! I am excited to see what my own kids do this year. Comment below what Goals you may be setting for yourself & your kids!

Please share other ways you help your children develop new talents.

I am regularly posting about homeschooling and other family life content. So keep an eye out for our weekly posts!
