Celebrate New Year's 2021 and refocus after break by writing New Year’s resolutions! Students set new goals while learning the history of New Year’s celebrations and traditions, and the how and why of making resolutions. This high-engagement resource includes a teaching PowerPoint and Google Slides presentation, plus a 5-day lesson plan. You’ll be ready to go your first week back with New Year's activities, videos, New Year’s reading passages with comprehension questions, a resolution writing craft and a New Year’s quiz in both a paper and Google Forms format.
After the mini lessons and videos, students are guided through writing their own resolutions and make a New Year’s party horn craft to write them inside. The resolution writing craft makes a perfect January bulletin board and the download even includes no prep title lettering.
