Encourage your child to create a holiday themed story!
Students can write a story, draw a comic strip, create a video, draw a flip book, or find another way to create the story.
Students can use technology or create their story on paper! Some tech ideas include: cell phone videos, iMovie, google draw, adobe spark, you-tube, or paint.
Give service, volunteer, and lend a helping hand.
This is a great time of year to volunteer or give service. Challenge your kids to do 5 acts of a service for someone else each day, with at least 1 of them being for someone outside of the house.
Keep track of the service and report them to each other at family dinner!
Create a poster of smart goals that the family wants to accomplish - 1 family goal and 1 individual goal per person.
Talk about New Year's Resolutions and why they are important. Help each child create a goal they can work on for the coming year. Write the goals on a poster and hang it where everyone can see it!
Have students create a smart goal!
