I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this is my last episode of 2021! I’m going to take this opportunity to continue my conversation from my last episode when I shared my personal reflections from 2021. In my opinion, January is the perfect time to reflect on the past year and set goals for moving forward. In this episode, I’m going to share how to plan for student reflection and goal setting when you return from winter break.

By looking at the positive and negative parts of the previous year you can learn and grow in the future. This is an important concept for not only adults, but our students as well. That’s why I created a 5-page writing activity for them to do just that! This is not just your typical hand-made book because I’ve incorporated illustrations, polaroids, and more! I can’t wait to hear how your students enjoyed this activity, so don’t forget to grab check out this flipbook linked below!

In this episode on student reflection and goal setting I share:
  • A description of my 5-page student reflection and goal writing flip book
  • Why my flipbook is my favorite activity for the first week back from break
  • Ideas to get students motivated to generate creative goals
  • Fun suggestions for how to make self-portraits
