Setting Goals for the New Year!

Well the new year started off with 3 snow days and a 2 hour delay! So our first week back was incredibly short and sweet! We started off setting some new goals. I used a page from Tracee Orman's free activity pack to get my students thinking of things they could do this year.

Each of the numbers in 2014 had a prompt for them to write about. TWO things you look forwards to, one thing you want to ZERO in on, ONE thing you want to improve, and FOUR things you want to accomplish this year.

It took some time but they all did a great job coming up with personal goals they wanted to achieve! Then we colored them, cut them out, and glued on their favorite color paper so they can be displayed where we can all be reminded of what we want to do in the coming months.

I love how they turned out! I love that the kids took personal interest in them and that they want to look at them when they come in the room. I am hopeful that many of their goals will be met as we finish up the school year! 

How do you celebrate the new year in your classroom? Do you set new goals too? I would love to hear how others get off to a good start after the holidays!
