Super Bowl and New Year's Resolutions

I usually don't do too much with Super Bowl activities in the classroom, but this year News2You dedicated a paper to the Super Bowl. We decided to use that as a basis for a lesson on voting, learning a little about football, and of course, making a Super Bowl snack. 

The classroom voted 12 to 1 for the Seahawks to win. As we know, that didn't go so well. Here are a couple pictures of our Super Bowl snack. We made fruit dip (following the recipe from News2You….We added cinnamon to the recipe you will find through the link.) 

We loved the fruit dip and apples!

Some of us liked the fruit dip MORE than the apples!

As part of our All About Me lesson, the students made New Year's resolutions about something they would like to learn how to do 'all by myself'. Here are a couple examples of our writing activity and the resolutions the students chose.

Until next time….
