When goals are created, it helps us to improve ourselves.Two of the goals I created, I’ve have been working hard on from the beginning of the school year. I’ve been working on doing math quicker. Also, I’ve been working on becoming a better reader. I have a goal that I really wasn’t working on. That goal is to become neater in writing.
I have reached my goal of doing math quicker. I am able to do rocket math quicker than in the past. Also, I moved from addition to subtraction. I worked on my math goal by practicing hard every day. One day, the TV was on while I was about to practice math. I asked my sister, “Can you lower the TV?” “No!” She replied. Should I go turn off the TV? Yes, I thought. I went and took the TV off because I didn’t want any distractions. On that same day, I was able to finish my math practice quicker than the day before.
Also, I have improved on my reading goal. I’ve moved up four levels in reading. I would still like to improve further on my reading goal. Therefore, I would like to improve on reading smoother. One day, my cousins were over and I was trying to focus on my reading. They were playing a Wii game. “Can you wait until I’m finished reading?” I asked. My cousin, Ajay said, “Fine.” My other cousin, didn’t respond. I thought she was about to catch a fit. So, I went to play with them.
I have a goal that I didn’t succeed in. Which is writing neater. I wasn’t really working on it. One time, I was doing homework and I had to go somewhere, so I ended up writing very sloppy. Then I thought, I should rewrite this and make it neater. My dad said, “Come on, we have to go.” I said, “Okay.”
I have a new goal, which is to improve in writing. To improve in writing, I need to use more vocabulary words. I also need to improve on my organization skills in writing.
I will be keeping my old goal, which is to become a better reader. I will need to focus more on my reading. I will need to improve on my fluency in reading. I would like to read less choppy. Also, I will continue to read as much as I can. I hope, I am able to reach my goals.
