PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*Updated for 2014* The beginning of a new year is a great time to teach reflection and goal setting skills.

Included in the pack are:
- Drawing and writing worksheets for memories and goals.
- Star craftivity for memories from 2013 (with 3 different drawing and writing options for easy differentiation).
- Star craftivity for goals for 2014 (with 3 different drawing and writing options for easy differentiation).

This activity has been designed to be used after a reflection upon everything that has happened and everything your students have achieved in 2013. I use think, pair, share to ensure each child is fully participating. First they think to themselves, then they discuss it with their partner and then you call upon a few children to share either their or their partners memories. Then they can complete the drawing and writing activity. Repeat this with the goal setting part of the craft, first discussing hopes and dreams for the new year and then using think, pair, share again.

Print on colored card or allow the children to lightly color the stars with pencils or crayons when they have finished writing. Once the stars have been completed and glued together, punch a hole in the top of each one and hang them with string in your classroom. Encourage the children to refer to their goals throughout the remaining school year and reflect upon their successes before the summer holidays.

There are different drawing and writing requirements on each star so you can choose the ones that best suit the abilities of your individual students.

Please rate and comment if you find this activity useful and let me know if there is anything I can do to improve it or adapt it so it better suits the needs of your students.

**Feel free to share a link to this product with teacher friends or on your website or blog but please do not sell or distribute it yourself.

I made these last year and the students LOVED them. They turned out great. Glad to see they are updated for this year! It was a loong project but worth it (many steps). We made these into mobiles that hung in the classroom for quite a few weeks.
