Ringing in the New Year

It was so great to see so many smiling faces on Wednesday when everyone returned to school.  After a nice {long} break the kids seemed happy to see all their friends and tell each other about their Christmas gifts.

This month our Maize Way character trait isPicture1

We rang in the new year by learning what it means to have self-discipline and the importance of making goals or resolutions.  To help with this we read Squirrels New Year’s Resolution by Pat Miller.  This story taught us that a resolution is “a promise you make to yourself to be better or help others”.  As a class we brainstormed a BIG list of resolutions  . . . then everyone got to choose one or two of their own and write about them.  Then we made these cute little phone art projects to Ring in the New Year and our resolutions are stapled under the numbers.
