    With Crayola® Colored Pencils write down one or several goals that you would like to achieve. Next, write down all the steps you can take to reach those goals. For instance, if your goal is to raise your grade in math, your steps might be: 1) Bring home math book every night to complete homework. 2) Do extra credit work. 3) Ask for help. 4) Study longer for tests.

    On poster board or a large sheet of construction paper, use a ruler to draw a ladder from the bottom of the paper to about half-way up. Write each action step to reach your goal in order on the ladder rungs. Color in each rung.

    Draw stars and write your goals on them. Draw smaller stars to represent small achievements and one large star to show your main goal. For instance, the smaller stars could show your test scores and the larger star could show your final goal of getting a higher grade. Outline your stars with Crayola Glitter Glue.
