Part of each New Year is of course the resolutions we make, all in the hopes of somehow being and doing better. For my students, I've always done some sort of writing activity related to resolutions, and this year I will continue to do so. The big difference will be the super awesome bulletin board I will create to display student work and reflections on their resolutions as readers for 2013.
I've just posted my Reading Resolutions Pack in my TPT shop:
(Click on the picture above to check it out in the shop.)
This resource contains 3 different writing activities (with printables and teaching suggestions) for your students to reflect and plan for their reading in the New Year, along with clip art images for bulletin board/door displays and bookmarks to laminate and give students as a New Year's gift and remind them to stick with their goals.
I plan to do this with my students the week we return from vacation. I haven't even begun to formulate or firm up my own New Year's resolutions yet--have you?! Too much to do and too little time! Nothing at all as exciting as Y2K is happening, and I'm sure this year's resolutions will have something to do with the family that was only an idea back then. Plus, of course, some of my vices and things I would like to do that I've maybe been to timid to try will be addressed. I'm looking forward to a relaxing vacation where I can actually ponder and reflect.
