Product Description

Happy New Year 2019! Set new goals and make resolutions with this fun art and writing construction activity.

Engage children creatively with this New Years 'All About Me' Instagram style cell phone construction, art and writing resource.

Ideal for use as a first week back activity or as an art specific or self reflection lesson.

Invite students to cut out and make their own fold out booklet style art-phone, and then to complete the image making on the front cover and the written elements inside.

I will update this activity each year, so you will be able to download free updates if you would like to continue to use the activity beyond 2019..

1. The front cover of the activity:

Invite students to respond to and illustrate the 9 questions or prompts, with thumbnail doodles or drawings:

Happy New Year, Fireworks, Balloons, a New Year Brings, Year of the Pig, 2-0-1-9

2. The fold out inside pages:

2018, Looking Back, is designed in a text message style, and asks 4 questions:

What is your best ever memory of 2018?

What is the most important thing you learned about yourself last year?

Did you try a new sport or do something that really challenged you?

What would you like to leave behind in 2018?

2019, Looking Forward, prompts the following:

My top 5 goals

My wish for 2019

My no.1 resolution

Open ended questions to complete, I imagine that…. I plan to….

Also included in the packet:

Only basic materials are needed:

Heavyweight paper / card stock for printing

Scissors and glue stick

Pens / pencils / colored marker pens for the artwork and written work

String or pegs for garland

Considerations and how to use this activity:

Encourage students to move beyond words, and 'draw their answers'

Consider the space around the images they draw

How do the 9 images look collectively?

Is there an emerging theme or style or color?

What colors do we associate with words?

eg fireworks: red, orange, yellow

How do students feel about the first week back to school?

It’s OK to express dislikes as well as likes, our fears along with our hopes

The completed art-phones look great pegged up collectively as a classroom garland or can decorate a wall, door or bulletin board.

Here is some happy buyer feedback:

‘Super excited to use this with my kiddos this week! They love the opportunity to have a little drawing and coloring time since they just don't get it anymore in today's classroom.’

‘ADORABLE! We did this the week we came back from "Christmas vacation" - they LOVED it. It was the most engaged I've seen my students on a task that required coloring.’

‘Great way to share goals and relevant to 21st century learning! ‘

‘I liked how this was kid friendly and involved both the previous year and the new year!’
