It’s hard to believe the new year is almost here and it is time to set New Year’s goals. We start back after the new year and I am already thinking about how I am going to re-focus my students. They are always so excited and exhausted from winter break. One important thing we do is spend the first couple of days reteaching important procedures. This is a great time of year to talk about setting goals for the rest of the school year. We brainstorm some personal and classroom goals and record them on chart paper.
I try to stay clear of the word resolution and use the word goal. Here is a picture of an anchor chart we have used in the years past.
