While I hope that 2012 is my BEST YEAR EVER, I'd also like to help the students at my school realize that they can make it their best year as well. So I've created a collection of three activities that focus on goal setting and character education. It's on SALE for a BUCK on my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
But I also made the third part of it available for free. I'm calling that part "So This Year" and it asks students to consider a goal that they plan on achieving this year. They need to consider the steps that they will take in order to achieve this goal. Then they illustrate it as a comic strip.
Living it LARGE is my shot at getting students to consider which character traits they admire in their friends and adults that they look up to. It's called "Living it LARGE" because I think that those traits should be lived as if they are written in ALL CAPS! LIKE YOU'RE SHOUTING! OUT LOUD! REALLY REALLY LOUD!
My goals this year are to continue to love my job and to continue to come up interesting ways to help learners be critical of information as well as LOVE READING!
