This is the perfect opportunity to reset any imperfections in your classroom. For example, if you read about a new classroom management strategy that you’d like to try, this is the time to do it! Explain to the kiddos that you are just as excited about the New Year as they are.
Sing the New Year’s Here poem (see below), then encourage them to share what they believe would be good goals to set for the classroom.
Write their ideas on an anchor chart, and keep it hung for them to reference throughout the remainder of the year.

New Year’s Here is a simple, catchy, poem that I’ve used for many years while teaching kindergarten.
I’ve now created this printable to go along with my year long bundle of poems for kids. This simple New Years poem can be sung to the tune of Frere Jaques.

After adding the poem to a poetry notebook, the kids will love doing a build a poem activity.
Build a Poems are my absolute favorite activities to watch my kiddos complete!
Whether in a pocket chart, on a table top, or on the floor, the kiddos work together to build the New Years poem.
As a reward, they get to recite the poem to the class when finished! How fun!
