This resource is a fun and engaging way to expose students to other cultures many may not be familiar with. Each text has a reading response assignment that asks students comprehension questions that require text evidence.

Use the included presentation slides to guide the lesson and introduce students to resolutions and goal setting.

➡️ New Year's Reflection Paper Fortune Teller Game: Use this fun New Year's class activity to engage your students in reflection and goal setting after the holiday break. This New Year's reflection game can easily be folded by your students with the included instructions. After it's folded, they can work with a partner to play the game and answer questions designed to have them reflect on the past year and set goals for the upcoming year.

➡️ New Year's Parts of Speech Hidden Mystery Pictures: Help your students learn parts of speech during the New Year's with these fun hidden mystery grid pictures. A color code is provided and each box has a word that students must color based on what part of speech it is! Students must know their parts of speech to know which color to use. Included are 4 different New Year's puzzles that reveal an image of a calendar, firework, disco ball, and clock! The student handouts and answer keys are both included.

➡️ New Year's Figurative Language Assignments: These three ready-to-use figurative language assignments include a variety of New Year-themed sentences that incorporate an example of metaphor, simile, personification, alliteration, oxymoron, or onomatopoeia! An answer key is provided to easily mark or review the assignments with students!

What Teachers Are Saying About The Activities in the New Year's Activity Bundle:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I have used this for several years, right after returning from the holidays. It is a great, educational way to ease back in.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This is such a great resource for having students learn a sense of culture and diversity. My 8th graders really enjoyed reading about the different cultures and traditions. I used this as a group activity where I had small groups of students read and complete the questions for each country, then they had to do a "mini" presentation and teach the class what they learned. They loved being the teacher.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Such a fun activity to do either before holiday break or in the first days coming back to school after holiday break.
