Every year I have my students reflect on their goals. In the past I have had them think of New Year's resolutions, but they are so easy to break within a few months or even weeks. I tried something new last year with my students and their long term goal setting. We brainstormed different words that described the qualities they would like to see in themselves or something they would like to work towards by the end of the year. Students then chose a word to focus on for the new year.
Also included are balloon printables for students to write their words on, and bulletin board letters and banners if you would like to create a bulletin board for the balloons. I included ten mini posters with character traits to make it easier for students to choose a word if they are struggling with that.
Since some students might have "the holiday blues" upon their return from Winter Break, I added some party elements to this pack. Each of my students will receive a treat bag with passes, a pencil, candy, and a bookmark.
