We talked about New Year's traditions at the beginning of the week. We talked about what New Year's resolutions are and why people make them. We made a goal for the New Year and wrote them on balloons. Most students put they want to be better readers and writers!
Then on Tuesdays, we talked about traditional New Year's day foods. We tasted blacked eyed peas and then graphed if we liked them or not. The kids were so funny! They either were asking for more or could barely stand the smell of them.
