I've created a presentation to help you get started that uses dancing elves to brainstorm some New Year's Resolution ideas. The presentation also goes over how to write a "SMART" goal that can be used as a New Year's resolution.

A SMART goal is:


The presentation has 6 dancing elves telling about seeing someone do something good (which makes them want to dance) and asking students a follow-up question about how they might respond. For example:

"Angel dances for joy when she sees someone never giving up."

"What's difficult for you to do?"

Finish up the lesson by teaching your students one of the dances from the drawing pages (instructions for the dance are not included, but Youtube has lots of videos). The dance can be used as a fun brain break or learning celebration throughout the rest of the year.

Then have students draw a dancing elf and write their New Year's resolution.

See my blog post with some easy art techniques you can use on your elves.
