2015: New Year's Resolutions

A new year is a great time to try new things and end bad habits. Second graders had a class discussion about resolutions, setting goals, and then working towards them.
They created New Year's Resolution Foldable:
2: things I'd like to learn this year
0: something I will try to stop doing this year
1: thing I could do to make my school a better place
5: books I'd like to read this year ·

My Heart Map

"My Heart Map"
Don't know where to start??? Just write from the HEART!!!
