Book Talk Thursday ~ New Year's Resolutions

Welcome to the final Book Talk Thursday of 2015!  It's hard to believe another year has passed us by.  So much has happened in my life this year that I am enjoying reflecting on it.  Most of it was happy, but some very sad. The unforeseen passing of my mother-in-law at an early age has made me think so much about where I am in my own life. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her zest for life and long for her to be here.  This year, I resolve to live my life to its fullest and not take anything for granted, especially time with my loved ones.

Now onto this week's Book Talk Thursday.  As you can see, the button is a little different. I have created a new button to make it easier for others to join in and to share on social media.  This week, I am featuring a great book to help young children understand what a resolution is:  Squirrel's New Year's Resolution.

In the book, Squirrel has never made a resolution and doesn't know what it is.  He goes around the forest talking to his friends and learning what a resolution is.  Each animal has his or her own resolutions, so Squirrel must figure out what he should do.  In the end, his friends all work together to create the perfect resolution for him.

When I return next week, I plan to read this book with my groups.  After they have learned the true meaning of a resolution, we will work together to create our own resolutions.  By using these framed sentences to guide my students, they will show success in the activity.

You can grab this freebie from my TPT store by clicking {here} or on the image below.

If you would like to link up, feel free to use either of the buttons below.  You can add your book title to the button with the circle or just use the stars button in your post.

I hope all of you have a wonderful 2016! I am looking forward to a new year and many new memories.
