A lot of people make new year resolution. At McDowell all of the students made some. We cut out and colored a piece of paper with 2018 written in bold on it. In the number 2 it said, “Two things I will accomplish in 2018:”. There was a wide variation in answers but some are “getting good grades”, “being able to do a back flip full twist”, and “Being a straight ‘A’ student”. Inside the 0 said, ”If you could zero in on one thing to improve on this year, what would it be? Why?” One person said, “…doing a handstand because I always fall” while other said, “ I hope to improve my trumpet playing so I will have more fun” or even “. The number 1 was a hard one for some people, it said ”Write about one thing you want to learn this year.” I said “Spanish because Then it will be easier for high school.” others said, “Ice skating”, “More about technology”, “How to draw” and many more. Finally we had to fill in the 8. The question was “ What are eight things that you look forward to this year.” Some people said “summer vacation”, “Spring sports” and a lot of other things. The point of this was to to make goals for yourself that you WILL complete. Everybody had different goals for themselves, as you can see. No ones 2018 paper was the same. This project also let us express our inner creativity. I you had to make a New Year resolution what would it be? Leave a comment to let us know.
