This New Year worksheet
will help structure a writing activity. Students should write down their New Years resolutions. You might want to save this for the end of your New Years class or for homework so that students have plenty of time to think about their answers. While the graphics on this worksheet may seem a little childish, the content is appropriate for every ESL student because students can adapt their answers to be as simple or complex as their ability allows. You might even want to consider sharing some of the resolutions about the classroom (anonymously of course) and creating a list of class resolutions. Additionally, you can share some of your own resolutions; this might make students feel more comfortable about sharing their ideas with you. This is one of the many worksheets available so if you are looking for something else, check out the rest of this page and download the ones that seem the most interesting.

What is New Year?
The New Year is the day that marks the beginning of a new calendar year, and is the day on which the year count of the specific calendar used is incremented. For many cultures, the event is celebrated in some manner. The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today in worldwide use, falls on 1 January, continuing the practice of the Roman calendar. There are numerous calendars that remain in regional use that calculate the New Year differently. The order of months in the Roman calendar has been January to December since King Numa Pompilius in about 700 BC, according to Plutarch and Macrobius. According to the Christian tradition, 1 January is the day of the circumcision of Jesus (on the eighth day of his birth), when the name of Jesus was given to him (Luke 2:21). Since then, 1 January has been the first day of the year, except during the Middle Ages when several other days were the first (1 March, 25 March, Easter, 1 September, 25 December).
