Seven Habits Happenings!

  • Part of being a leader is learning to set goals and look closely at who you are as a person.
    Here are some fun things you can do in your spare time to work on your habits.
    Please feel free to share with your parents, friends or with me (it's okay to keep these to yourself too)!

    * What would your road map to leadership look like? Create a road map for yourself. You can map out your 5th grade year or go all the way to college. Make it cool, take your time. I'd love to see it!

    *Use a circle diagram to map out the choices you have control over (inner circle) and those you have no control over (outer circle). Remember to work on the inner circle. Things you have control over might include: studying for a test, going to bed early, or eating healthy foods.

    *Read about a leader. Mrs. Wood reads a lot of history and you can learn a lot about leadership by reading about others who have led before you (good people and can learn not to make the same mistakes some bad people have made.) There are a lot of cool biographies in our library.
