This is a “Growing” packet, as there are no worries of it ever being outdated, for I’ve included patterns through 2020.

Each year I’ll up-date, taking out the old and adding some new dates, however should something happen to me along the way, I’ve also included a “fill in” template for 202____.

I’ve found that if I toss in a quick, easy and fun craftivity, with my students’ writing prompts, they are eager and excited to get down to the business of writing.

With that in mind, I designed this Happy New Year balloon.

The writing prompt rings in the new, while reflecting on the old, so it’s perfect for discussing “past-present-future” and practicing that type of writing.

The “reflecting about the past” and completing the writing prompts:
* ”My favorite thing that I learned, my favorite thing that I did, and my favorite place that I went . . .” is the front of the balloon.

The back balloon, contemplates the present and future:
* ”Something that I’d like to learn, something I’d like to do, somewhere I’d like to go . . .”

You can give students an option of which one they want to do, or assign both, completing them during two different writing blocks, then glue them back-to-back.

An added bonus is that completed projects make an awesome display.

Simply run off on a variety of colors of construction paper, add some Dollar Store curling ribbon and suspend from the ceiling.

They also make a lovely border at the top of a hallway wall.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a carefree New Year.
