I have to admit.. I am not one for New Year’s Resolutions!  To be honest.. I never really understood this as a holiday… but don’t get me wrong I will use any reason I can to get together with friends to celebrate!

But I have big dreams and big goals and I am working SO HARD to achieve them! If you count my blogging as a job (because it literally takes the time of a job), I work 3 jobs!  My hair is falling out, I can’t sleep at night, and it’s all because I am busting my rear to provide for my family and brighten our future!  It’s empowering and I love every minute of it but being so busy I have recognized the need for goal setting (which is essentially what a resolution is right?)

So I have teamed up again with my friends at Freebielicious and I want to share some of our goals and resolutions for 2014! To help you get a jump start on the new year we’ve also added some freebies that may help you reach your own similar goals.

Being so busy.. I am here… openly admitting… I am struggling getting everything with my kids in! I am fortunate enough that my husband is at home with the kids and can take care of our home but as a teacher I need to remember that reading is super important.  So my resolution this year if to be a reading super hero and read to my kids every day!  I read to them.. but I need to make it a routined time that is sacred!

I am also admitting… oh gosh I hope some of you don’t throw stones at me… that I need help in this area big time!  So… after some reflection I have come to the conclusion that I need my 6 year old to help me be accountable!  So I made these fun little punch/color cards (and kept them generic so you can use them for other goals too.)  My plan is to fill up a punch card and trade it in for small treat!  Being help accountable by my 6 year old will help for sure!!

So that got me thinking about goal setting.  I want to have Braedon set a goal as well. So I made this fun matching sheet so he can fill out his goal as well!

And you could of course very easily do this with your own students in class or your own children at home!
