This activity focuses on having students discuss their New Year’s resolutions verbally and then writing their responses. Twenty-four discussion cards on New Year’s resolutions are provided along with a page of six blank resolutions for students to write more resolutions.
Then there is a page for students to write down all their resolutions and they can bring home and share with their family. There are two pages (one with 4 resolutions and one with 7 resolutions). So depending on how many resolutions the students have you can choose which to use with them. **So make sure you only print one**
There are four different scenes (messy room, kitchen, winter, and New Year’s Eve). For each scene there are several WH questions you can ask students. Then based off the scene you can ask students what they think the child or children in the pictures New Year’s resolutions should be. The winter scene focuses more on inferencing and figuring out what belongs and what does not and why. After each scene are questions about the scene that only the teacher needs. There are examples of what the child/children in the pictures New Year’s resolution should be.
The discussion cards can be cut out and used for discussion among a group but the scenes can be used on a Smart Board or printed out.
