Back from Christmas Break; as I have been popping into the classrooms many students’ have been writing their New Year’s resolutions. New Year’s what? It turns out that the term ‘New Year Resolution’ is a bit of a head-scratcher for some kids. “What is that?” said one bewildered little guy.
When asked more simply about their goals for the New Year, the kids gave thoughtful-and adorable-answers. “I can get more 100’s on my tests,” “Try and be a little nicer to my sister,” “More money is a good goal,” and “Get more better at listening.”
