Friend Venn

I had so much fun with my kids yesterday! They were fairly quiet, probably because they were tired! 

I always have the students complete an activity about resolutions for the new year. This year we made these foldables.

They had to write a school, home, and personal resolution. Since I teach at a private school, we also added a resolution that regarding our relationship with the Lord.

Some of my favorites were:

  • I will not chew my nails.
  • I will have a new hairstyle everyday.
  • I will run a marathon.
  • I will sleep more.
  • I will invite Heather over to my house everyday.
  • I will deepen my relationship with the Lord.  (Yes, a 7 year old wrote that!!)
We started our graphing unit by making Friend Venn Diagrams.  I found the idea on Just Add Clip Art.

You can get the prewriting activity and Venn template here.
