|The famous mouse.|
It was the perfect reward for meeting his summer reading goals and a great way to illustrate goal setting and achievement.
Our reading work has continued up until this week when Brady went to spend 3 weeks with his Dad in Virginia.
After we passed his school's goal of 350 pages and he earned a trip to Chuck E. Cheese, he said, "I did my goal. We can stop now."
|40 tokens for $10 lasts a LONG time.|
"Oh no!" I said. "Let's make a new goal!"
So he set the goal of 650 pages and surpassed even that to 700. He'll get a trip to Sternberg Museum of Natural History when he gets back.
In the meantime, I'm amazed at the power of goals to keep him going. Though he did say, "Chuck E. Cheese wasn't as crazy as they showed on TV." A lesson in how commercials work too, I guess.
I think goal setting is something you can never start early enough, for them and for you!
