Goal: Stop Procrastinating.
Action Plan:
1. Do my homework first thing when I get home.
2. Get as much work done at school as possible.
3. Give myself a certain amount of time to get my homework completed. (8pm)
4. Stay on task and circle problems/questions I am not sure of. Ask for help from Mom/Dad/Mrs. Brown.
5. I will write all work in my planner before leaving class and use it to pack my backpack before leaving school.

Which of the steps in your action plan have you been doing? Which ones haven’t you been doing? Why? In which ways do you feel like you have made progress toward achieving your goal? Explain.

I will try to get some of my homework done at school this way I have less to do at home. When I get home I will do my work, not talk, and not be distracted. This way I won't be finishing at 10:00pm which is too late. My goal is to have everything completed by dinnertime.

I also need to be better organized. My papers are loose in my locker and I will start organizing them in their folders. This way when I get home I will have all my assignments with me and my parents wont have to drive me to school.


So far, I am doing great. I have been working on doing step 4, and have no trouble anymore. Now I am having major trouble with organization. I don't bring all of my papers home and all of my papers that I have are shoved into one folder. I think i just put all my papers in my locker. I think that organization is going to be my new goal.
Which of the steps in the action plan has your child been doing? Which steps hasn’t your child been doing? Why? Do you feel like your child has made progress toward achieving the goal? Explain.

Phillip hasn't started his goal setting actions at this time. We have discussed them at length and he promises to make every effort to fulfill them. If he can get his homework completed before dinner there will be a lot less stress in our household. If he can turn himself around then we will take him to Cedar Point as a reward next year.
