It’s hard to believe the new year is almost here. I start back in another week and I am already thinking about how I am going to re-focus my first graders. They are so excited and exhausted from the winter break. I always begin the first couple of days reteaching some important procedures. I also like to talk about goal setting with my kids. We brainstorm some personal goals and record them on chart paper. This can be hard for some kids. I try to steer kids aways from the “I want to play more minecraft” responses!
Here is my anchor chart from last year that I made with my class. I will do something similar this year.
Here are some books that I have in my library that I like to read.

Finally, here is a freebie that I made last year, but have updated it for the current year. It’s simple and sweet, because I really only spend a day on new year’s goals and then move on. Click below to grab yours.
I have also compiled some ideas and resources onto a Pinterest board. Check it out!
Do you have your students make goals or resolutions?
