Winter break is *almost* over. If you are anything like me then that means that you have already been planning, prepping, and creating lots of amazing resources, lessons, and activities for the first few weeks back to school.
My district starts school on Tuesday, and a four day week is a great opportunity to start fresh, review routines, and get ready for an amazing second half of the school year.
There are a ton of great New Year's Resources that I like to use in my classroom. I don't use the same one every year, and educators are always adding more. Here are a few of my favorites(free and paid) resources that I want to share with you!

I just love this activity! Lindsey has some great ideas about how to incorporate this New Year hat into your classroom curriculum! Check out her product in her TPT store here.
I am BIG on having students write goals. What I love the most about this awesome freebie from Victoria Moore is that there is a sheet that lets students brainstorm about their goals before adding them to their bracelet! This visual reminder is a great way to help students set and accomplish goals for the new year!

Mr. Hughes has a great New Year's Resolutions Mobile! These can hang from student desks, classroom ceilings, wall displays, or students can take them home to display.
You can snag his freebie here.
This cute foldable is one that I do use every year! It is quick, simple, and straight to the point. The students love it, and we can include it in our writing notebooks!

Are you looking for a rigorous writing and thinking activity? If so, then this free packet from Tracee Orman is going to be a great addition to your first lesson of the new year.

Happy New Year!
