New Year’s Writing Paper Freebie


All right, you guys…time to make good on my New Year’s resolution:  to actually write on my blog!  I hope you had a wonderful New Year’s, and I hope that your holiday break isn’t over quite yet!  I’m trying not to think about school, but…I did start planning a little New Year’s writing activity for Monday.

At the beginning of the school year, my kiddos set reading goals for themselves.  That was part of my first reading workshop unit, which you can find {here}.  The goals were posted in the hallway, but I have been guilty of not doing much with them.  So, when they come back after break, I’m going to give them back their goal sheets and have them reflect on how they are doing on their goals. I’ll give them this writing paper and also let them write about any other academic goals they may have for this year.

I am excited to utilize your writing idea. To better get my students ready for second grade I want them writing everyday until the end of the year. Thanks for the brilliant idea.
