Adults could model a personal goal using the ladder.

Ask a child to share a goal.  Example:

If the goal was to get fit, step 1 could be to walk to school once a week.  Step 2 could be going on a daily walk.  Step 3 could be jogging around garden / playground.  Step 4 – taking up a sport.

The Children's goal could be school based or more personal e.g. hobby based.
