New Year, New Me (Mobile Activity)

Greetings My ATUE Friends!
It is so nice to be stopping by with my monthly post! I don't know about you, but I can't believe that today starts my Christmas vacation. HOLEY MOLEY! Keep the theme from Leanne, here is my take on the new year!  
    With Christmas Break knocking on our doors and the hope of a nice break from the routine of recess duty, correcting assignments, and endless meetings a heart-warming thought ready to happen, you may NOT want to think about those first few days back. After all, if you are like ME, you will want to just pretend school is our for the summer break.

     Sadly, the reality of school will hit us about December 29th, and we will hit panic mode! Now NO ONE should have to worry about the new year with New Year's Eve and Day that needs to be celebrating!

Enter the solution:

This fun activity is PERFECT for students in most every grade. Students are asked to reflect on the past year and set goals for the coming year! They look AMAZING hanging for the ceiling in your classroom, hallway, or even on the wall!

Here a couple of pictures from MY classroom:

I LOVED how they looked last year, and I am excited to see them hanging again this year! If you want a more detailed post about them, visit MY blog post by clicking HERE!

I am confident that this will be one of the best activities you will do in the new year! You can get your OWN FREE copy simply by visiting my Teachers Pay Teachers shop HERE.

From all of us here are Created by MrHughes, have a most joyous Christmas and a wonderful new year!

  1. Yay, thank you for posting this, John! I was actually going to message you about this project because I remembered it from last year (though I found it a little too late to try) and I was determined to try it this year. Looking forward to using it. :)

    1. Thanks so much Amber! :)
      Glad you found it. Sorry I was late in my response. I have been quite ill. On the upswing now, I hope. Enjoy your new year and thanks again.

  2. This was an awesome idea! Thanks so much! I used this with a special ed class & they did a great job. It was nice to see them express themselves. & coloring always is calming!
