Most teachers have students write a paper telling about their New Year's Resolution. This is a twist on that activity. In this activity, students will write a New Year's Resolution for a literary character, from a selection they have read. Although I've included pages for certain characters, I've also included two pages where students can fill in the name of any character of their choice. It makes for a really cute and original bulletin board. This 63 -page teaching packet includes:
-Literary Character New Year's Resolution Project sheet with Grading Rubric
-Overhead transparency/printable- sample resolution (Grinch)
- printable pages for literary character's resolutions (See bottom for characters I've included:)
-2 templates for students to write in their own character
-BONUS iphone texting activity (This is such a fun activity! It can be done at any time of the year! It isn't month or holiday specific.) The student will be given a printable containing a large iphone. Inside this phone, the student will create a text conversation between 2 characters in a literary selection. I've also included a sample for the students to see. My students love this!
