Hooray for 900 followers! Thank you.

I really do appreciate you, and get excited to see this number grow.

As promised, here’s a special FREEBIE to help celebrate.

This quick, easy and fun New Years writing prompt craftivity, makes an awesome bulletin board or hallway display.

Children complete the writing prompt: “High fives for me! I made these New Year resolutions and am trying to keep them.” Encourage students to think of five.

Afterwards, children pick a partner and take turns tracing each others hand and wrist on a bit of flesh-tone construction paper, then trim.

Drawing fingernails, a watchband and rings adds extra pizzazz.

Have children write the New Year below the “knuckles”.

I’ve included a clock pattern students can cut and glue to their wristband, drawing hands to show midnight.

The girls LOVED adding flat-backed jewels to their rings. You can get self-stick ones, or use mini glue dots. Glitter nail polish was another option and highlight.

Students glue their hand print on a diagonal on the bottom, right corner of their completed writing prompt.

For more color, have children glue the writing prompt paper on a sheet of colorful construction paper, then scatter on a bulletin board or hallway wall.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a year filled with lots of “high five” teaching moments.
