After some time I naturally came to believe that my fifth graders are motivated better when they combine scientific problem, writing task and etc. with arts. They enjoy this form of activities more than plain worksheets or a blank page of their notebook.
Making New Year’s resolutions is a tradition that I like to uphold as well. So every year after Winter Break I come back to my classroom with a new set of goals. It's a great opportunity to start fresh for me and my kids.
Personally, this year, I wanted a new way to welcome the New Year with my kids with an ease back into the school routine but it still challenges them providing them an ample opportunity to develop fine motor skills and foster their creativity. So, I decided to create a personalized flip-book where they would enhance their writing skills while having fun. This is the result.
