An activity booklet for students to infer how a character would bring in the new year.
In this New Year’s activity, students use evidence from a piece of text to infer how a character would bring in the new year.
After reading a fiction text in class (or independently), students will choose a character from the text and complete a set of seven activities using their chosen character.
To ensure that this resource is printed properly, be sure to set your printer to print:
- flip along the short edge
- choose ‘actual size’ instead of ‘fit to page’.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between the color or black and white version.
