After your kōrero, hand out our Amazing Brain worksheet and ask them to complete the first three questions (then stop before setting their SMART goal).
It will be important to let tamariki know that feeling like we're not good at some things, is very normal. Perhaps draw from some of these real-life examples of successful people's perceived failures, that things didn't always come easily.
We also love this image which you may like to share with your tamariki, even working through it with them on the board.
Before continuing with the second half of the worksheet, you may like to have some kōrero around goal setting, so they are able to create a goal that is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-based (SMART). The achievable part is really important! Encourage them to start with something they reckon they'll be able to do, if they stick at it.
You might also like to chat about how great it can be to break our big goals into smaller, bite-sized chunks, that we can tackle one by one. Why might we do this? Because doing so can help us take positive, manageable steps in the right direction.
Once tamariki have completed their worksheets, find ways to keep their goals front of mind and support them with the tiny steps they'll need to take along the way.
Creating an artwork may be one way, a regular 'growth mindset' check-in session might be another. You could also bring these goals into their parent conferences in some way, so they can support tamariki to learn these new skills.
