Are you ready for an amazing new year in your school library? I am! I’ve rounded up some fun learning center ideas to celebrate the start of 2016.
Reflecting on 2015
Skip to My Lou (a parenting blogger) created this cute free printable to help your students reflect on the year gone by. We want to encourage our students to review and reflect, rather than moving on immediately to the next thing. This should help them to practice this skill!
I know that as a parent, I would love to have a few of these to look back on!
Resolutions for 2016
At the same time, we’re looking forward to 2016, and making our resolutions for the new year. From the Pond posted this free printable. Students choose one word to describe their new year, and then list 3 things they will do to make it happen.
Goal-setting is another life skill that we want to impart to our students! I might need one of these for myself!
Here’s the cute lift-the-flap resolutions printable, from Rachel Lamb, the Tattooed Teacher. You may remember that she creates these every year. Your students will fold the paper in half, cut the flaps apart, and write under the flaps.
2016 Bookmarks to color
Sonya Dykeman, who blogs at the Library Patch, shared these free printable bookmarks for your students to color.
I’ll print these out as a library center for students who don’t have enough time to complete the other new year centers.
I hope your new year is as amazing as you are! What do YOU have planned for 2016 in your school library? Any librarian resolutions?
