Happy New Year Writing Prompt Balloon Craftivity

When your students return after Christmas break, have this interesting writing prompt ready for them.

The photo is my last year's sample, but I've included two blank patterns for future years (201____ and 202____)  so you can use this craftivity for many years to come.

Run off the balloons on a variety of colors of construction paper.  Students choose one, trim and complete the 3 writing prompts on the front.  Think of a longer prompt for for older students to write on the back of their balloon.

For that finishing touch,  add a school photo and tie with yarn or curling ribbon.  They look wonderful suspended from the ceiling, or as a border on a hallway wall.

January Writing Prompts

January offers lots of opportunities for fun writing prompts.  I compiled a list of interesting ones for your kiddos to choose from.  They are based on all sorts of kooky "special" days that are celebrated throughout the month.

Venn diagrams are also a quick, easy and fun way to have students practice comparison & contrast writing.  I've included 7 different New Year-themed ones in the packet.

There's also a class-made booklet with a variety of options to get your students excited about writing.

New Year-themed Telling Time Emergent Reader

Since the New Year revolves around time, I thought it would be interesting to design an emergent reader that takes a child from noon, on New Year's Eve, to ringing in the New Year at Midnight. 

Children trace and write the digital time to the hour + draw the appropriate hands on the analog clock.  

The story ends with a writing prompt about what children did on New Year's Day and how they celebrated.

New Year ABC Booklet

Get a jump start on the New Year with this cute emergent reader, and review upper & lowercase letters, as well as build vocabulary at the same time.  

You can make one for each student, so they can trace and write the words, or you can simply make a teacher's copy and share a page a day for the first week back after break. 

As you read the booklet, have students shoot up their hand if you come to a word that they are unfamiliar with, and then take a moment to define it. Discuss the words and what they mean.  See if they can come up with anymore and add them to the list.
 
For individual practice have children write that day's words in their writing journals or student-made dictionaries. This makes a wonderful Daily 5 word work activity too.

Let's Trim The Tree Cent-sationally!

Here's a quick, easy & fun game perfect for a December math activity, or your Christmas party day.

The "Trim the Tree" game helps reinforce coins (penny, nickel, dime & quarter).

Each student gets a set of coins to color and cut out, then they pick a partner and take turns rolling the dice four times.

Their 1st roll equals how many penny ornaments they will glue to their tree, the 2nd roll is for nickels and so on. Older students can total up the value of their coins and write that amount on the tree trunk or star.

To practice more math, as well as review color words, worksheets are provided.  There are several options for different levels of study.

I've also included completed samples to help clarify things.

The coin anchor charts, are a great way to introduce the coins, review and refer to.

Click on the link to pop on over to my blog to pick up the Let's Trim The Tree Cent-sationally packet.
