Lessons to Ring in the New Year

New Resolve

On January 1, people often make New Year’s resolutions.

Have your students brainstorm resolutions of their own. Let them clip words from the newspaper to form their resolutions. Then have them create decorative posters featuring these New Year’s promises.

Discuss way to keep the resolutions.

Making History

The inauguration this month marks an historic day in American history. Have your class create a commemorative book on the events of the day using articles and pictures taken from the newspaper. The book should include one sentence from each child, conveying that child’s impressions of the events at hand.
