The perfect writing resource for the New Year!
This resource helps students focus on creating goals for their Brains (learning), Bodies (health), & Hearts (character building)! There are planning pages for brainstorming and final draft pages for writing! Both the brainstorming pages and the final draft pages have four different versions to fit your class's writing needs!
4 Planning Pages (for 4 different levels of writing)
4 Styles of Final Draft Writing Paper (for 4 different levels of writing)
How It Works In My Classroom:
After returning to school from Winter Break my class and I discuss Growth Mindset, the Power of Yet, and the benefit of setting goals for yourself. We create an anchor chart of the goals we have for our brain (learning), our bodies (health) and our hearts (character building). My students then choose goals from the anchor chart and draw or write them on their planning page. After they are done planning they use the Final Draft page to write all three goals for the New Year! I hope your students enjoy this resource as much as mine do!! Happy New Year :)
** I use this writing activity with my Healthy Choice Challenge Curriculum to start of the New Year with a Health Unit and Goal Setting!
