New Years Activities

Hi, friends!  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are enjoying your well-deserved time off.  Today's post is featuring a few ideas for New Years!  We head back this week, and I'll be easing myself and my students back into things with a few fun New Years activities!  Check them out below:

I Have, Who Has Game-So fun for Morning Meeting or as a time-filler.  To play, go over the vocabulary on the cards first.  Give each student a card.  Have students stand or sit in a circle.  The student with the first card reads it.  The game continues until all cards have been read.  Great game to work on listening skills and vocabulary!

New Years Coloring Pages-
Great as an early finisher activity, morning work, or inside recess activity!  I like to fill these in throughout the first week back when the kids and I both need a little break.  Letting them use their markers is a sure way to keep them quiet and calm!

New Years Wishing Wand-I found this a few years ago and made it when I had a small class size.  Students choose a few things they "wish for" in the coming year and glue them onto their wands.  Add a dowel rod and ribbon to finish it off!

New Years BINGO-I found this BINGO game online a few years ago.  While searching for the link for you today, I noticed the creator changed it.  To get your own New Years BINGO, do a Google search!  Lots of fun options for kid-friendly boards.  

2023 Tear Art-
This is a fun craft that I found on TPT a couple years back.  It's a free download, and the creator updates it each year!  Click here to grab it.  *I've cut skinny strips for my students ahead of time and had them snip the strips into small squares.

New Years RING POPS-
These are a fun little surprise to leave on your students' desks as they return back after winter break.  You can also save them to use as a reward the first week or two back!  The file gets updated each year.  Simply log into your TPT, go to "My Purchases," find the product, and re-download it each December!
