This Powerpoint is great to use at the beginning of any new unit, semester or area of transition. It is made for the beginning of 2nd semester, for New Years Resolutions, but can be adapted for any other transition easily. The strategy that is used is one of my favorites for students. It is a strategy that works on students speaking, listening, writing, time management and collaboration skills. It is a strategy you will want to introduce at the beginning and use over and over! It allows students to talk and share, but keeps the classroom organized and allows you to maintain control. This is the PowerPoint you want if you don't know what you will do the first day back after break! Great for an ice breaker and getting students comfortable with each other.
