A lesson for the 1st day of the New Year

3,2,1 expectations from 2013

When I say we are going to do our New Year’s resolutions, the students always complain telling that they’ve been doing it for ages. I decided to adapt the famous 3,2,1 introductions to a New Year’s first lesson.

Old School option

Give students post-it notes

Write the instructions on the board

3 things you want to do/achieve this year

2 places you want to be/see/visit this year

1 thing you want to buy this year

Digital option

Give the same instructions

Tell students to create comics.

Here are some examples from my students. They are still posting their comics 🙂
