New Year's Ideas for the Classroom

Believe it or not, it's time for thinking about how to incorporate New Year's activities in the classroom. I'm here with some trusty, fun ideas! Read through and let me know which one is your favorite!

New Year's Rhyme Time!
You know  I have something for you that I created!  My second graders always seem to need to practice rhyming so I combined that skill with some new year's themed words like "confetti" and "year". It's a cut and glue activity so they sneak in some fine motor practice with the scissors too! Grab it here!

New Year's Eve Video
Transparent English's video on Youtube is  called New Year's Eve Customs and Traditions. It might be intended for English language learners but check it out and see  if you could share it with your class. He does mention champagne toasts and midnight kisses (with  a cartoon picture though)!

Do a Noon Year's Eve Party
Some classroom and families do this - I guess you could do at noon on the first day back to school after January first! Teacher to the Core does a great job of explaining it at her blog post here.

Try a Seesaw Activity
Incorporate technology with your New Year's activities by using the Seesaw app! It's free to teachers by the way. Check out Teach Live Travel's freebie here!

10 Bag New Year's Countdown
Jess from Cooties and Cuties explains how to prepare 10 bags to countdown the first day back in the new year. She also has a freebie to help you get the kids out of the back to school, no more vacation doldrums!

New Year's Mobile
If your'e into crafts, try this New Year's themed mobile craft from Coffee Beans and Children's Dreams!

Read Aloud or Featured Books
