How to Set Up Your January Bulletin Board
Give each student a jar template to record their hopes and dreams for the upcoming new year or new school year. For younger students, they may need to draw their hopes for the upcoming year. Have your students include their names and cut them out on the jar. Attach each jar to the bulletin board, letting everyone know their hopes for the new year!
