When we return from the winter break I give every student a die cut footprint. This is a tradition that began with my 4th grade classes about ten years ago. I ask each student to set a goal and write a statement that explains very specifically how they will achieve that goal. These are written on the feet and turned into a great hallway display with the title "Put Your Best Foot Forward in (new year) 2013".
As I encourage my students to put their best foot forward, I thought I would model the practice here.
