Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of the amazing teachers out there!  With Christmas falling on a Sunday, we had the shortest break ever and even had to return January 2nd!  As hard as it is coming back, I know I’m blessed to come back to a job I love!  I’m getting back into the swing of things today, and I’m looking forward to some fun winter projects beginning by having my kinders write about their New Year’s Resolutions!

I created four custom 2017 New Year’s Resolution Writing Templates  for both primary and intermediate writers.  I begin by reading Squirrel’s New Year’s Resolution to my kindergarten.  We discuss what a resolution is and each student completes the writing beginning with the words “I will…”  We completed the writing portion yesterday, and they turned out great!  Also included in the bundle are party hats which the kids can decorate.

I take the kids’ pictures and blow up their faces in Powerpoint.  I print them in color.  We attach the party hats to their heads and hot glue on noise makers (which you can get on clearance after NYE)!  Here is a photo of how it came out in 2015.  I’m still finishing up my 2017 board, but I’ll post that as well when it is finished!

This makes for a fun and fabulous New Year’s Bulletin Board that will work great in any elementary grade!  ENJOY!!!  I wish you a happy and healthy 2017!  Click on the photo above for the 2017  link to this product!
