New Year's Resolution
Happy New Year! This pack includes a short close reading passage to help students better understand what a New Year's resolution is. The passage is a half sheet, so it will work perfectly to glue sideways into an interactive reading notebook. Once glued into the interactive notebook, students can write their thinking out to the side of the passage.

In addition to the passage, there are three flippable activities (all printed on one sheet) for their notebook. One is on the definition of resolution, one focuses on how they will feel once their resolution is achieved, and the other focuses on making a resolution and what their plan will be to achieve it.
In addition to doing this activity as a whole group reading lesson, you could also have students do it during a literacy center. Feel free to use it in your classroom however you would like.
---- I offer this SAME passage in two different formats. This particular passage is formatted for interactive notebooks. It is the exact same passage and questions just formatted differently from the full page version.
If you would like to purchase the one page passage with 5 questions that go along with the passage, click HERE

I hope your students set some great New Year's goals for themselves! :-)
