New Years 2017 is an engaging flip book and a meaningful keepsake for the first day back to school after the holiday break. Students can reflect on the best part of 2016 and ring in the New Year by setting goals.
This New Year 2017 Flip book
is easy to make and requires no cutting or pasting. It uses three pieces of paper printed on the front and back. Copy in black and white and add your own color as time permits.
The contents include:
*Best Memories from 2016
*Accomplishments of 2016
*A Year to Celebrate ~ using the date ~ similar to an acrostic poem
*Information about Traditions and Celebrations around the World ~ respond to the question, "What would you consider to be the perfect way to celebrate the new year?"
*Setting Goals for 2017 - Students will set three personal goals and 3 academic goals - give specific examples of what to do to become a better YOU!
*A second version, with different clip art, is also included in order for you to choose the best version for the age and interest of your students.
*Student samples to help students generate ideas
Second graders will need more guidance than older students. The expectation of writing performance will differ from grade level to grade level. Student samples have been included to help 2nd and 3rd graders begin the thinking process before writing their own unique responses. Most 3rd -6th graders will be able to put the flip book together once it is ran off correctly and students follow the teacher's directions. For 2nd and 3rd graders, I pull 4 or 5 students who are skilled in paper folding and show them exactly how to "cascade" the papers prior to folding. These students then return to their groups and guide their teammates through the process.
This product will be updated every year. If you purchased last year's version you simply download it again from your TpT file to get the new version year after year. It is not necessary to make an additional purchase.
