New Years Resolutions and Activities for Special Education Classrooms

Are you ready to go back to school after winter break? 

These four free new years activities will help you get back into the swing of things, and spend less time planing so you can enjoy what you have left of break! 

All of these activities are perfect for special education classrooms and have little to no prep, just print and go!

New Years Cards (and Resolutions)

Writing new years cards is a fun and educational way to start off the new year! Students will include a new years resolution in their cards and can write a card to a friend, teacher, or family member (or as many as they can in the time they have!)

This pack includes levels for ALL of your students, including students who need symbol support, tracing, or copying options! A perfect and fun way to start the new year off writing!

New Years Resolutions Social Story Book and Resolution Worksheet by Autism Classroom News

You can read the book with the class to talk about what resolutions are and discuss examples. Then students can complete worksheet on their New Year’s Resolution. On this page, the students circle one word that they want to base their resolution on. Based on what word they choose, each student can be given a worksheet on that resolution and goals for them to cut and paste. What an awesome way to help students think about resolutions for the New Year!

New Year's Wishes from The Bender Bunch

Need a fun and simple craft for your students upon returning from winter break? Students can choose from 12 different wishes they have for the New Year to include love, friends, family, health, toys, kitten, puppy, house, vacation, car, food, or money. They choose 5-6 wishes, glue them onto the star, tape on a straw, add some ribbon, and that's it! Super fun and simple enough for students that need a little extra support!


This activity is so simple, and yet, so much fun! Just give all of your students some sprite or other school appropriate drink and "cheers" to the new year! It makes for a perfect time to work on social skills and manners AND it's super fun!

So, how will you ring in the new year with your students?!

Wishing you a fabulous new year!
