New Year, New You, New Freebies


Have you set some New Years resolutions for yourself this year? I typically tell myself a thing or two that I want to do differently, but I never write them down or do anything to hold myself accountable for following through on them. This year I want that to be different! I want to set a goal and I want to reach it.

My friends at Freebielicious and I want to share some of our goals and resolutions for 2014 with you! To help you get a jump start on the new year we've also added some freebies that may help you reach your own similiar goals. 


I have a terrible habit of starting a million different projects and not finishing most of them. Sometimes, it's because I forget I started it. Sometimes, it's because I get bored of it. And sometimes, there's just no good reason.
In order to help myself reach my goal I have found a file I started on December 12, 2012 and FINISHED IT! So, not only am I helping myself reach my goal, I am also helping you out as well! Especially if your goal is to collect writing activities for your students to do!

Isn't it ironic that my freebie is all about making goals?!
Well, I'm off to find something else to finish!
Laundry, vacuuming, cleaning...
The possibilities are endless!

Hop on over to my friend Laral, over at Little Miss Kindergarten for another resolution and matching freebie!

  15. What an awesome pencil sharpener! Thanks for the freebie!

  16. That really is a nice pencil sharpener! I am doing the "one little word" resolution where you pick one word to guide you to your goals. My little word is "reclaim"--reclaim my discipline, my health, space, time, my teaching [autonomy], etc. I really like this idea!
