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). Please visit my blog post dated 12/29/11 at www.CFClassroom.com to see the completed display I put up.
