Since our first day back was a Friday, we had a relaxing day! We discussed what a new year's resolution is and why people make them. We brainstormed different resolutions we could accomplish for the rest of the year. Let me tell you, these first graders have strong goals for the rest of the year! We came up with many, such as: be a better speller, reader, follow directions, listen, read more book, and memorize math facts.
Of course, on New Year's Eve you have to wear your party hat and have a party horn! So, we chose our resolution and then wrote it on a party hat and then drew our faces! Here is how they turned out!
We are making sure to keep them for the rest of the year!
