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, as there are no worries of it ever being outdated, for I’ve included patterns through 2020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
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
balloon, contemplates the present
* ”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
