After Winter Break I like to ease back into our classroom routines...so what better way than with a fun craft-ivity?! This craft encourages students to reflect on the past year and create new goals for the new year!
Here is my sample:
I like to encourage students to come up with all sorts of new goals--academic and social emotional included! Together, we discuss what makes an attainable, realistic goal and brainstorm ideas for student goals.
I added some cute additions to this craft by using some materials I had on hand and others I picked up at Dollar Tree. For this craft-ivity you will need:
- Colored construction paper
- Blow Horns (found at Dollar Tree)
- Sparkle pom poms (optional)
- Hair color yarn
My kiddos had a blast putting together their faces and creating 4 new goals for the new year. I had my kiddos use runny glue to attach their hair to back of their party hats. Then, I used hot glue to add the blow horn and sparkle pom pom to the top of the hat!
Just a cautionary word: Your students WILL ask to blow their blow horns. So, for fun, I let everyone blow them for 5 seconds...no more, no less! :)
Here are samples of student work...they turned out A-dorable!!! Interested in this New Year craft-ivity? Check it out in my TPT store here! :)
