New Year's Resolutions Writing Kit for Grades K-5



I uploaded a New Year's Writing Project to my store this morning. 

This kit was created to be used by teachers in grades K-5. The materials were designed to make modifications easy within your classroom.

I recently completed this activity with my third graders in school as well as my first grade son at home. The differentiated pages and templates that are included made it a perfect activity for both.

This is a great activity for the month of January as it focuses on resolutions or as I referred to them with my class...goals.

After editing with the teacher, the students wrote their final copies. I always try to culminate our writing projects with a simple art project. These pages include adorable colored clipart, but I opted to print them in black and white, photocopied them and let the kiddos color them in. We then mounted them onto construction paper and glittered the edges (because I'm fancy like that).

Included in this 15 page kit you will find the following New Year's-themed items:



-a primary brainstorming page to collect ideas
-an intermediate brainstorming page to collect ideas
-a 3 detail web to organize writing
-a single detail web to organize simple paragraph writing
-primary-ruled draft paper
-intermediate-ruled draft paper
-primary-ruled final product paper
-intermediate-ruled final product paper
-a simple sentence activity page with space to illustrate for our -youngest learners





This year I hung them on my classroom door because I had some adorable owl writing to put up on my bulletin board in the hall. I displayed them as is, but the past few years I've done the board shown above using blowers and party hats. I've also taken photos of the students wearing party hats and using the blowers to display with their writing which is super cute too

Happy New Year Friends!

Are you making any resolutions?



I just wanted to take a moment to wish each and every one of you a wonderful New Year! I hope it brings you all much health and happiness. Be sure to take time this weekend to rest, relax and recharge for the weeks ahead.Take off your teacher hat, put the papers that need correcting aside, close your plan books and do something you enjoy for the last few days of winter break!
