The past few months, we’ve been setting goals in each of our subjects. This month, we’ve decided to make our reading goals public to hold ourselves more accountable.
Take a look at the reading goals in 3M. We’ve talked about the importance of an action step when setting a goal. Each goal listed will have an action step, a “HOW” for the goal. Use this information to help your child stay on track.
