New Year Reflections and Intentions
When this time of year comes around, it’s nice to connect as a class or a family by reflecting on the year that has passed and envisioning the one we have before us.
With this in mind, we’ve created two inspiring printables to help facilitate this process…
Our Year-End Reflections lesson is an invitation to record our life events, both big and small. From important life lessons and beloved memories, down to our favorite foods and books—these are all features of the year that or worthy of documenting and fun to look back on.
Next, visualize the year ahead and put your ideas into action! Remember, the more specific you can be when setting goals, the better! The first step is taking your big-picture dreams and breaking them down into actionable steps—one intention at a time. It’s the small accomplishments that create a sense of well-being for children and grown-ups alike.
Spend some time imagining what it will feel like to accomplish your goals. Draw a picture of what it would like and feel like to once your goal comes to fruition.
Once you’ve shared this experience, find a creative way to save everything until next year. Then, you can reflect on your growth and celebrate your accomplishments!
