Starting the New Year on the "Right" Foot!

To start the year off on the "right" foot, we did a focus free-write on our plans for this new year: what we planned to keep doing, what we planned to stop doing, and/or what we planned to begin doing. Then we traced our right foot, chose our top three (or more) goals, and wrote them on our foot.  I (Mrs.Allen) saw the original idea HERE and revised it to work for us.

The sign and feet on the door were arranged by Jaden, Courtney, and Lexi, and the sign was created entirely by Lexi.

Hi! I love the plans all of you have for the new year. I'm going to direct my 5th grade students to your blog and see if they have similar plans! I noticed you recently had an auction. That is something we do as well. I pay my students "froggy bucks" for their classroom jobs. This month we will have our first Flea Market (only done in January and May). Otherwise we have an auction once a month. I will be adding your blog to our Blog Roll so my students can visit your page often. Please check out our blog page as well!
Again, love your blog!

Thank you so much for the comment! I'm pretty sure Mrs.Allen either saw it some where or she thought of it, but either way it was really fun tracing our feet! We have a auction every month and we always pay with our fake checks. We also pay rent to our teacher Mrs.Allen for our desks and some of us bought our own desk.
