It's a Brand New Year!

Here we are sliding into a new year and need to have some activities for our classrooms.

Sing a Song:

I love song cheers because they are easy to learn and the kids love to make all that noise. Here's a good one. Sing it to the tune of "Are You Sleeping".

Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Good-bye to the old year!
Hello to the new year!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Rah! Rah! Rah!

Click Here for PDF Copy. If you click on the image it is too big for the printer.

Make Some Noise Makers:
Rice-A-Raca from About.Com
Football Noisemaker from Ehow--this could be adapted to a New Year Noisemaker

Print Out and Decorate Party Hats from Printable Family: These are actually for birthday parties but would work well for New Year's too!

Make a Bulletin Board:
This one is easy. Put a great big 2009 on your bulletin board. Then ask the the kids what their resolution for the year is. Write those resolutions in the 2009 lettering. If you have a picture of the child to go along with the resolution--even better.

Here's an apple juice and graham cracker toast to 2009!
