Goal writing can be tricky sometimes, especially when we are trying to figure just how we want to tackle a skill deficit.  Luckily, for some nerdy reason ?, goal writing is my JAM!  I always write following a S.M.A.R.T goal format Also SMART Goal Bank.  Below you will find examples of Objectives/Short Term (ST) goals.

Please feel free to use any of these as a base to create goals for your students but be sure to align the goals to your student’s timeline and ability ??
