Updated for 2016 - and beyond! Welcome your students back and welcome the New Year with this writing activity. A New Year means reflecting on any changes to make, and this activity will guide your students through the process of setting goals for home and school.
Included is a prompt page to help students:
* set goals
* determine steps needed to take
* explain why this will make the student a better person, or why it could make the world a better place
Also included is a blank final copy page not specific to either home/school goals and with no year to allow teachers to customize the writing assignment if needed.
We've provided two display or keepsake pages on which students may write their final draft for their "home" goal and their "school" goal. This would be a perfect addition to a school "time capsule" if you use one.
Be sure to check out our other resources for your classroom, too!
