In this lesson, we will examine the history of New Year's Resolutions, the god Janus, and the idea of reflecting upon one's past in order to look positively ahead to one's future in order to write their own January Letters to themselves. Then, next year at this time, they can open the letters to see what they accomplished.

To kick off the new year, often we ask students to reflect in a letter to themselves. Just as the god Janus had two faces, we can ask students to look back on the past year(s) and set goals for the new year.
In the quiet of the winter season, I invite you to find nature's artistry during January and February, whether the earth is covered in white blankets or warmed by the sun's brilliance in your locale. Adults, students, and classes across the globe are cordially invited to contribute to my newest Reflect With Me Gallery of Artistic Expressions- Winter Wonder 17. You can see offerings collecting at #WinterWonder17.
