New Year, Super Student Writing

Happy 2016!  I love how I've seen the suggestion to pick one word for the New Year.  I picked the word FOCUS.  I want to FOCUS on relationships with family and friends, FOCUS on my teaching, FOCUS on my TpT journey, and FOCUS on myself.
When returning back to school after Winter Break, I always like to read the book Squirrel's New Year's Resolution to my students.  It's such a cute book and really lends itself to sharing about resolutions and trying to be your best in the New Year.

When we go back to school I am going to have my students share how they are going to be super students in the New Year.  I think it is important to review rules and expectations after coming back from an extended break and I think this will be the perfect way to do just that in a positive way with my students.  
I am going to chart their ideas for how to be super students using a web and I am going to put this image in the center of the chart:

I also created 3 different writing paper choices for how to be a super studentI am going to use them with my students to have them draw and write how they will be a super student after we chart their ideas.  
The writing pages could even be put out at a writing center after doing the activity with your students.  Just click the image to grab your writing freebie.  I have also included the anchor chart image for you to create a chart with your students before they independently write.
Don't forget to check out my Winter Break Writing post to grab another writing freebie to use with your students.
