Leader in Me is a character education program comprised of 7 habits.

For more information see the Leader in Me website!

The students on our Newsletter Staff will be writing descriptions of the habits each month. Check them out below!

 

Habit 1 – Be Proactive

By: Nurbanu C., Rebecca D. and Mckinzie L.

There are 7 habits in the Leader In Me. One of them is “Be Proactive.” Be proactive means to be responsible, respectful, and follow directions. When you are proactive you show others that you are responsible and that you help others if you someone in need. You can also be proactive by being respectful and not distracting others. Being proactive is very important because if you are not you are not doing the right thing. Being proactive is also following directions by doing what you are told, even if no one is watching.

Habit 2-Begin With The End In Mind

By: Nurbanu C. and Rebecca D.

The second habit is “Begin With The End In Mind.” This means you need to have a plan. For example, when you want to get a good grade on a test, you need to plan all your studying days, so you don’t forget about it and don’t rush. Another example is if you want to do really well in your sport or in a game, you need to prepare at each practice. That is what we can do to Begin With The End In Mind.

Habit 3-Put First Things First

By: Nurbanu C. and Rebecca D.

The third habit is “Put First Things First”. Put first things first means to work first, then play. For example, if you have a project due in 2 days, you should go home and begin it before you play. Otherwise, you won’t have time to start your project and you might not get it done. A way you can put first things first at home is to do your chores before you watch TV or take a nap. If you didn’t, there may not be any more time to do it. Another example is to do homework before playing with your friends. That is what Put First Things First means.
