Thinking About Your New Year’s Resolutions Yet?

New Year's is fast approaching - so it's time to begin thinking about resolutions.The holidays are just around the corner – and that means it's time to start thinking about New Year's resolutions.

Don't make them? That's ok. But they can help you focus on improving your life – and if you share them with friends, you may be more motivated to act on your intentions than you otherwise would.

Resolutions don't have to be about practical things like exercising or spending time with your family, either. In fact, if you're like other people, you may be resolving to take a deep breath in 2011 and enjoy life more.

According to brokerage TD Ameritrade, reducing stress and having more fun are this year's most popular New Year's resolutions. Two-thirds of people said they wanted to prioritize those things; saving more money – a perennial New Year's favorite – was also high on the list.

Last year, TD Ameritrade managing director Stuart Rubinstein said, saving money was No. 1. The shift, he suggested, may reflect the fact that people are worrying less than they were a year ago.

People, he indicated, "may feel confident enough in their financial standing to put relaxation and fun first in 2011."

    I personally use this with greads 3 or 4 and up. When they can read well. High school students could certainly use it, too, especially as a good review of grammar, because it will start easier and get appropriately hard enough by the end of the year.As for the KJV, it will use a LOT of KJV, but because this covers a history of the English language, we wanted Bible verses that use more modern English as well. Also, at the beginning of the year, when not enough grammar is known, we use simpler versions, such as the NIrV. As the students learn more, more difficult versions can be used.By the way, I love using the KJV in pronoun study. Knowing what the thee’s and thou’s mean and knowing their case helps SO much in understanding both the Bible and the way we use English today. The KJV’s use of these so-called ancient words makes it much more specific and understandable.I hope this helps!Hugs,~Anne
