I hope you are enjoying your break! I’m so sad that an entire week is already gone. Time just goes WAY too fast!
January in first grade brings a lot of changes and tremendous academic growth. We are always so busy. I love my class but they were quite chatty and just a tad whacky before we went on break. Some of the kiddos just let all of our rules fly out the window.
That’s to be expected with all of the excitement that December brings.
But I want to be sure we quickly bring things back on track.
So… I’m adding a little New Year’s inspiration to our behavior routine.

I’m going to start this first thing Monday morning. We will talk a bit about resolutions. That’s a hard topic for 1st graders. I have this fun little project that helps with that discussion and helps them understand the meaning behind resolution.
This little cutie looks adorable slip sliding on our “snow” covered bulletin board.
Since January will bring about a LOT of hard work, I thought I’d ease them into things on their first day back. An adorable penguin craft should help. 🙂
