A simple and cute PDF template to inspire all of us as we start 2018. I complete this along with the students and put them around the classroom as a way to constantly remind ourselves of the hopes and goals we set for the year. There is intentionally no space for their names so that we can keep these anonymous and perhaps encourage more honesty. Students CAN write their names, if they choose to.
Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Hope this will be a useful product for all my fellow teachers! I'd love to know your feedback and please give me credit if you share this with others. :)
