Happy New Year’s Resolutions

Inside: Fast and Easy New Year’s Resolution Craft

Hello! Have you ever had your best laid plans blow up in your face?
Of course you have!  Especially if you’re a teacher.

I was all planned for today and ready to make the cutest New Years booklets from Traci at Dragonflies in First.

I love this little unit. I did it last year and it was so cute.

I had a lot of photocopying to do so I got up extra early (which is no small feat, given the night owl habits I have) and got to school 40 minutes before the bell so I could get the penguin cuteness all ready.

Well guess what? The photocopier was BROKEN!!!

So I had to scrap my penguin plans and instead we made paper plate faces with our resolutions written on foolscap (is that a Canadian word only?  Not sure :)).

At lunch I drove to the Dollar Store and grabbed some party horns and this is what we came up with.

Not bad:)

Writing New Year\'s resolutions party-style. For early primary kids. Paper plate faces with talking bubbles and party horns. #newyears #newyearresolutions #gradeonederful
