When your students come back from Christmas break, discuss resolutions and the goals that they have for the New Year. Children choose a ball and complete the writing prompt. After they share their work, collect and sprinkle on a green-turf background, using the enclosed caption poster in the center: Having A Ball Reaching Our New Year Goals. I've also included 2 more writing-prompt stationery pages, for journal options, including one with a hockey theme.
After which time it will be up-dated and put in my TpT shop. Click on the link to see the new, 11-page New Year's "Having a Ball!" Writing Prompt Craftivity. I've now included a baseball and volleyball too.
