Hopes and Dreams 2
In September I set what I thought were realistic goals for myself. When I checked back to my Hopes and Dreams blog from September, my goals were to get better grades, to read more, and to improve my math skills. I thought, “Of course I reached my goals”. However, after looking back on my goals, I realized maybe I wasn’t one hundred percent successful.
I have been working on getting better grades by improving my effort. I really want to get all “4’s” on my report card. I’ll have to wait until March to see if I can succeed at this goal.
I have reached my goal of reading more by reading more often. I would sit on my flowered comforter quietly in my room with a reading goal in mind. Surprisingly time would fly by. All of a sudden my Mom was calling me for dinner and I realized I had gone ahead of my goal.
I have tried to reach my math goal by studying flashcards. I have gotten all forty of my math blaster problems correct. I feel I have reached my reading and math goals for the short term. but I know I cannot take a break because the ELA test will be here in April.
My new goal is to try to increase my effort. I will achieve this goal by trying harder and paying closer attention. Focusing on the tasks and challenges will be an area which I can improve. My second new goal is to practice my instrument three times a week. My instrument is the Bass. It is a very large and awkward instrument to take out. Now we have moved my instrument and the music stand to a more accessible location so I can play more often. I am going to try to play my instrument as soon as I get home from school. I will practice, practice, practice! I’m sure Ms. Lanuto will notice.
I know I can achieve my goal of getting better grades if I put in the extra effort. Effort will also help me reach my goal of mastering my instrument.
I am ready for this challenge in 2012!
