New Year's Resolutions for StudentsWorking on New Year's resolutions with your students but not sure where to begin? It's important that this activity is student-led so the kids feel some ownership of their goals, and to allow for individual growth. Providing some suggestions can help students develop New Year's resolutions that are SMART — ensuring they can actually attain their goals and measure the results to enjoy the satisfaction of meeting them! Here are a few kid-friendly goals that are also actionable for students and could make good New Year's resolutions.
- Before I hand in my worksheets, I will check that I have included my name.
- When I have finished a writing assignment, I will check it against my editing/revising checklist before handing it in.
- When I am not sure if I know how to spell a word from our vocabulary list, I will check the classroom word wall for help.
- I will increase the number of books I read each month to (X number).
- When I enter the classroom in the morning, I will hang my backpack in my cubby instead of dropping it on the floor.
- I will hand in my homework on time every day this year.
