Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas! I delight in trimming my trees to perfection, finding the perfect gifts, and searching antique shops for mid century Santas. This year, it just took me a little longer to get the groove going. But it is all done, and whereas I am just a little embarrassed, I think my house looks beautiful and Christmassy.
Onto school stuff! While I wasn't decorating for Christmas, one of my ideas for the first day back at school had to be put on paper - well, digital paper. Our new semester starts when we return from Winter Break, and I wanted to have my students write resolutions. Now, we don't go back until the 13th of January (try not to hate me too much, remember the opening paragraphs, I am obviously feeling fragile), and "New Year's Resolutions" seem a little dated by that point. So, I thought we would call our resolutions something different.
New Semester's Resolutions has a passage explaining the history of resolutions, as well as explaining their purpose, and then space for three New Semester's Resolutions. I plan on reading through the passage, brainstorming, and writing the resolutions during our first day back during small group rotations. It seems like a perfect way to get them back into school and refocus them after being off for three weeks (don't hate me:). You can find it in my store on TpT where I am throwing my own little After Christmas Sale, and everything is 20% off!

Now, I am going to go watch White Christmas, again! Suddenly, I am in the spirit:).
