First, we talked about what resolutions were and likened them to goals. As a group we made a circle map to brainstorm ideas. I forgot to take a pic of that. Then the students went to their seat and wrote their own resolution on the party hat and used construction paper to make a self-portrait. "Can we ask someone if we don't know what color eyes we have?" I LOVE 1st graders...
I wanted to use real noise makers but couldn't find them cheap enough so I had my kids make their own from scrapbook paper. My class really got into this project and I think they turned out pretty darn cute!
In 2011, I will be better in school and do more reading.
In 2011, I will eat more healthy foods.
In 2011, I will do things faster.
(This one is adorable since this boy is extremely slow but his work is ALWAYS extremely neat!)
In 2011, I will be better about doing my laundry.
You go, Mom! I wish I had started my 2 boys doing laundry when they were 6!
I have to thank Brooke at Primary Perspective for sharing her New Year's ideas and the hat printable. You can get them HERE
(In fact I think I will head there next to leave her a comment. I LOVE comments so I imagine she does, too!)
