Toast to the New Year!

As my students return for the new year, we discuss making New Year's resolutions. We quickwrite about what we think we did well in year that passed and how we can improve in the year that has just started. Then, we turn this quickwrite into a bulletin board writing, "Toast to the New Year!"

A couple of years ago, Mailbox Magazine had this toast paper and we have used it ever since. The students love the double meaning of the toast and like decorating their toast to be just how they like it (as long as I can still read their resolution!).

I have also created a creative writing opportunity for your students. Find it in this link!

Do you have any fun ideas for January bulletin boards?
