Do you make resolutions for the new year? I always take time to evaluate my life in an informal way and look at some areas I might want to change or tweak. For example, I need to get more sleep–perhaps go to bed a half an hour earlier. I also need to get my fanny off the couch more. After work, I sometimes plant myself on the couch and allow myself to be covered with cats for the evening.
The new year is a great time to get your students thinking about self improvement as well! Have them complete this activity to make a New Year’s resolution and display for the classroom.
