happy new year goal/plan printable

When we go back to school on Monday (yes, I am doing my best to enjoy every last minute of the last few days of holiday), we will be chatting about new year's goals.

A resolution is a pretty heavy thing to put on a 5 year old's shoulders (heck, it's pretty heavy for an adult), so we talk about making a goal for the new year.  Somehow a goal seems much more manageable than a resolution.  And making goals is a prescribed learning outcome for kindergarten in BC.

Making a new year's goal requires the wearing of a silly hat.

And a Happy New Year 2013 photo shoot.

Goals are brainstormed, thought about, formulated and shared.  Maybe a little bit of A -B partner talk. (I always love hearing about their goals - some of the kidlets show some real self knowledge in the things they want to get better at.)

Then we print them.  You know the drill; some kidlets print on their own, some need help sounding out words or with letter formation, some kids print over my yellow marker lines and some do the talking and I do the scribing.

Glue on the portrait.  Put the glue around the perimeter of the picture.  A dot in the middle will just not do the trick.

Bling up the paper.  Markers.  Maybe even some glitter. I might be able to be persuaded.

Onto the bulletin board (they look so empty without all our Christmas creations)  and then into a class book.

What are your goals for 2013?  Mine is one little word.


  1. You didn't tell me you were going to enter glitterland!! And it is even after Christmas!

    1. Never promised. I have to be persuaded. :)


  2. I love it Sandi! I'm doing this cause I never do anything really fun for New Years (at school, that is). I'm also going to do this cute little penguin activity from Traci at Dragonflies in First. I think it's worth looking at too:)
