Have fun with this New Year's Resolution Activity... Kick off the first day of school in January with this fun "Ringing in the New Year" banner. It would be perfect for New Year's morning work or as a center activity during the first week of January. It also makes a perfect New Year's hallway or bulletin board display. Attach it to some yarn or ribbon and create a banner of hanging bells.
Students will fill in the following areas:
Greatest accomplishment from last year...
My New Year's resolution for home...
My New Year's resolution for school....
(Illustration) - Me Celebrating the New Year
Adjectives to describe me for the New Year
There is a copy with lines and without lines.
There is also a bell pattern with only lines if you would like for them to write in greater detail about a resolution. They can then staple that to the cover bell.
They will color and cut out the bell once completed.
There is also a title bell that says "Ringing in the New Year" if you want to use it as a title for your banner or bulletin board display.
