New Year's Activities

It's Christmas Eve!  Merry Christmas!

You're probably reading this post well after the Christmas holiday, so I'm going to focus on New Year's Activities you can do with your students. Have you planned your first week back from the long holiday break? Or are you a procrastinator like me? Here are a few ideas that might get your creative juices flowing!

This is from Scholastic and is a great reminder on the need to "reset" your classroom  in the new year.  I needed this reminder! I totally need to refocus my classroom management and do some activities that reteach how we act within our four walls.

I think my own kiddos would love this one!

Last but not least, this New Year's Flap Book will keep students busy for a couple days as they contemplate 2014 and their goals for 2015.
