At the close of a year, we talk a lot about new year's resolutions - and how we want to better ourselves in the "fresh start" of a new orbit around the sun. But after the 2020 we had, it feels more important to look ahead to the possibilities of the future and frame "betterment" in a new light - in the form of hopes, dreams, and visions for what could be.

Our students have experienced a lot in the past year, and as their young minds grow, it's important for us as their educators to not only teach, but learn from how they view, and want to change our world. We at VariQuest have put together some ideas for activities you can do with your students, to encourage them to envision becoming their best selves. It's not just one "new year's resolution" anymore.

Goals for the New Year

my goals for the new year posterWe all have one life to live, but that life, and our time, is divided into many sections. Help students set goals for kindness, health, learning, and more with this "My Goals for the New Year" download, available free for customers on the VariQuest Resource Center - which can be decorated and customized to encourage creativity and thoughtfulness.

Print this as a poster on the VariQuest® Perfecta® Poster Design System for student displays, or as handouts to keep in journals or take-home folders!


Vision Boards

my vision board corkboard posterYou've heard of them - but have you ever completed one? Put simply, it's a visual representation of your goals - and because many of us are visual learners, being able to SEE your goals holds you more accountable than reading words on a page, or speaking them out loud. Using cutouts, drawings and creativity, you can use this corkboard template download, free for customers on the VariQuest Resource Center, to hand out to students with ideas to display attainable goals and hopes for their futures.

Check out our video with tips and a demonstration of how to use the VariQuest Perfecta® Poster Design System, Cutout Maker 1800, and Motiva® 400 Specialty Printer using the VariQuest Design Software and Engage Every Learner Content for creating amazing vision boards with students in your classroom!
