Activity #2: “Steps for Success!”

This activity emphasizes the importance of setting goals and how to make plans to achieve those goals.


  • Yellow paper
  • Tag board
  • Glue
  • Thin black felt pens
  • Black construction paper

Teacher Preparation:

  • Trace stars onto yellow paper so there is enough for each student
  • Cut 4 x 4 inch squares of tag board so each student receives four squares
  • Cut enough 10 x 10 inch squares of black construction paper for each student


Step by Step:

Step One: Review with the students the various goals (“I can” statements) they brainstormed from the previous activity. Select one of the goals and ask the students to think of 4 steps they could take to persevere and reach the goal.

Example: I can be a good friend.

  1. Be friendly.
  2. Say nice words.
  3. Play with the person at recess.
  4. Be helpful.

Step Two: Provide the students with a star tracer, tag board squares, and black construction paper squares.

Step Three: Students cut out the star and write a personal goal in the center of the star using a black felt pen.

Step Four: Students think of four steps they could take to reach the goal.

Step Five: Students write each step on a separate square, numbering them in order.

Step Six: Students glue the boxes to the black construction. Glue them with steps 1 & 2 on the top with steps 3 & 4 below.

Step Seven: Students glue the star in the middle of the four boxes.


End Product:

A star indicating individual student goals surrounded by the steps of how to reach the goal.
