***This file had a makeover and has more than doubled in size! I have added a journal option in addition to the worksheets, treat bag labels, pennants to make a few different banners, and bulletin board letters if you would like to make a bulletin board with students' word launch!***

Every year I have my students reflect on their goals. In the past I have had them think of New Year's resolutions, but they are so easy to break within a few months or even weeks. This year I have decided to try something new with my students and their long term goal setting. We will brainstorm different words that describe the qualities they would like to see in themselves or something they would like to work toward by the end of the year, then they will choose a word to focus on for the year. I have titled this O.W.L., or Our Word Launch, since I will be “launching” this activity at the start of the new year.
Since some might have "the holiday blues" upon their return from Winter Break, I decided to give this a fun party theme. Each student will receive a treat bag with goodies and bookmarks. I will have a bulletin board all ready for their word launch!
