The Tiger Times
Happy New Year!
Dear Mohawk Families,
I hope your holidays have been restful and enjoyable. The beginning of a new year often inspires us and gives us hope. According to Google, hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen, a feeling of trust. I believe we went through a great deal in 2020 and I hope we can all be together again soon.
Many times, a new year is also a great time to set goals for yourself. You can also help your student(s) develop the habit of reviewing their own goals and plans. Research shows that when we set goals and receive specific feedback about our goals, we are more likely to be successful.
Throughout the school year, teachers work with students to create their own individual reading goal and a plan to help them achieve this goal. They create a goal that is specific and measurable such as improving their score on MAP (NWEA) or increasing the number of sight words they recognize. When a child creates a plan for improving their achievement, it gives them ownership of their learning and empowers them to reach that goal. Students need to be aware that hard work and persistence are the ways to success. Praising students for their efforts toward reaching their goals is extremely important and allows students to develop a Growth Mindset.
You play an important role in the success of your child’s education. Teaching your child to PERSEVERE when things are difficult will promote his/her self-esteem. Help them ACHIEVE their goals in the classroom by remaining connected to the process. Finally, supporting their education ensures your child will SUCCEED.
