I Wish... Craftivity

On my last post, I posted a New Year's freebie which was designed for my students to reflect on their favorite memories from the last year.  I also wanted an activity for my students to think about the upcoming year and all that it may bring.  I decided on an I wish...activity for students to write their wish for the upcoming year.  If they could have just one wish, what would it be?



This craftivity could be used for New Years, but could also be used for MLK Day.  Students could write about a wish they have for making the world a better place.  I know Christmas just passed, but it could have been used for students to write a wish for the holiday season.  There is also a blank star that will leave this craft open-ended, so you can use it in any way you see suited in your classroom and curriculum.  Student can decorate the blank face pattern with construction paper, yarn, crayons and/or markers.  The rhyme(author unknown) can be used to create a poster, or it could be used as a title for a bulletin displaying student work.

You can get this craftivity in my TPT store for $1.50.

I created the examples above with my older son.  It was good bonding time :), well for me anyhow.  I'm sure he would have rather been playing video games.   I love how he made himself with red, spiky hair, which he does not have, might I add.  But I love his heartfelt wish for his brother to be healthier during the upcoming year.  My little Greysen has an extremely rare allergic condition that pretty much makes him allergic to most foods.  He is three now, but remains on formula for most of his nutritional needs. The only 2 foods, he can safely eat are potato and corn. 
I too, wish so very much for a cure for Eosinophilic Esophagitis! 
With hopes that everyone's wishes come true in the upcoming year :)

  2. When you find yourself dreading dry or dense foods because you have difficulty swallowing them, take note! You might have eosinophilic esophagitis. This means your esophagus narrows so much that food gets stuck, resulting in impaction – which is a medical emergency. Have yourself checked for it – don’t just assume that you have food allergies or just need to chew your food more thoroughly! click here for more details
