This is the first year that my children have made "New Year's resolutions." It took some guidance on my part so that they didn't write down the first thing that popped into their head and with which they were unlikely to carry through. I didn't want them to fall into the category of people who say after a few weeks, "Oh, well. New Year's resolutions are made to be broken!"
So to help my kids think carefully about theirs, we first discussed what exactly a resolution is: a commitment to an idea or goal. Then I thought it would be most helpful if I created a fun little chart to help guide them on which goals they want to work toward this year.
The printable focuses on four aspects:
- 3 things I want to learn about
- 3 traits I want to work on
- 3 skills I want to develop
- 3 books I want to read!
The activity was so successful, I wanted to go ahead and share it with all of you. Just click the link below. The chart is available in both English and Spanish.
Happy New Year!
