Kids are back after a long winter holiday. They might as well have gone to the moon. They've been far from school and far from rules...
New Year's writing is a great way to remind kids about rules and their best self.
What will they wish for? How will they have their wishes become real?
I like kids to brainstorm, get ideas from each other, and then draw and write a keepsake book of resolutions. It's also a reminder to use the proper foundations of writing: capital letters, lowercase, spaces and periods; writing about a theme, and starting with a catchy opening phrase such as:
- Dancing is awesome!
- Singing is fabulous!
- Computer is fascinating!
My kids will write page after page, day after day. By the end of the month, they'll have a treasure book of memories of the year they were five.
If you'd like a lovely stack of printables for your kids' New Year's Keepsake Book of Resolutions--plus minibook, New Year Song, poster, and party hat (feathers, frills and confetti optional)...Happy New Year!
