New Year's Activities for the Classroom

It's New Year's Eve and I am on the couch with my laptop, my husband and my beagle and the truth is...

I wouldn't have it any other way.

I won't even make it until midnight.  I'm old and boring.

I've taken a break from the Silhouette Cameo I got for Christmas because I'm about to throw it around the room I'm thinking about heading back to school next week and with that comes....

Oh my word...I actually have to write lessons and figure out what I'm going to do and....wear real clothes. 

Once I got over that whole shock, I started to think about how I will be incorporating the new year into my lessons.

A good way to ease back into the grind is with a meaningful craft.  I found lots of great ideas on Pinterest.

These idea from the blog Elemeno-P Kids are cute.  This one is my favorite:
 I'm thinking I will improvise this a bit by having my students write a goal that they have for themselves on each strip (link).
The blog Buggy and Buddy also has some great ideas for celebrating the new year.
Your students can also reflect on the page year with this freebie.
Students can also write about their goal's for the new year with this cute writing craftivity that makes a great hallway display.
I hope you have a happy and healthy New Year!
