The Theme for this week's wall of fame is Goal Setting and Effort


Effort:

1) Achieving goals through commitment and hard work
2) Giving your best in everything you choose to do
3) Trying without giving up or giving in
4) Making the most of every opportunity

In the article, Teaching Children Confidence Through Goal Setting, Dr. Gail Gross, Human Behavior and Education Expert, explains that goal setting is a powerful skill we can teach children.  Goals help children have a great sense of self, self-control, and confidence. People with a high-self efficacy believe they can change behaviors to overcome challenges and forge ahead to reach goals or resolutions.
