Sam Hairston was able to achieve his goals by using 3 success strategies. Staying focused has been important in my life. I remember ever since I was a young girl all I wanted to do was teach. I would annoy my siblings with playing school and when they didn’t want to play school, I would have imaginary students and a clipboard to take attendance. Of course everyone was always present!
Think about the 3 success strategies. Choose 1 to write about. In a Quick Write, state the strategy and explain how you have used the strategy in the past to reach a goal. Use at least one of the vocabulary words we just discussed. Be prepared to share your Quick Write when the player visits our classroom.
