Leader In Me 7 Habits Classroom Posters

I am so excited for next school year. After four awesome years in second grade, I found out that I will be moving back to first grade... YAY! But with great news comes great responsibility. So now I get to spend my summer updating all my classroom posters and decor to be first grade friendly. Since we are launching our Leader In Me curriculum next school year, I decided to start there. I updated the posters I made as an introduction to the 7 Habits last school year for my second graders. While the posters worked out perfectly last year, they needed a few changes to work out perfectly for first grade this year. Here are the first set of posters I made... I tweaked them just a bit by getting rid of the cursive font and adding clipart to help my early readers understand and relate to each of the habits. I think they turned out pretty cute, and I cannot wait to include them in my new classroom setup. I have a few more Leader In Me resources that I am working on for the classroom bulletin board to reinforce the 7 Habits throughout the school year. I will post them once they are completed.

7 habits songs: Habit 1: Be Proactive

This year my school is starting to be a Leader in Me school, teaching the students the 7 Habits of Happy Kids (/Highly Effective People) as our character ed program. So I decided that one way I am going to teach these habits in the music classroom is through a short song for EACH individual habit. Here's Habit 1! The other 7 Habits songs are all here. Habit 1 melody notation is on Noteflight here. Habit 1 melody + ostinato notation is on Noteflight here. This song has entirely I and V chords, so you can layer it with tonic/dominant ostinati (one example is below), put the with Orff instruments, have kids improvise over the chord roots....you name it! The song also leaves 3 beats to audiate after "Stop and think," so you can work on audiating rhythm or dominant as well. :) The YouTube recording here is my favorite ALL-7-habits song. So cute!

The 7 Habits of Happy Kids

If you haven't heard of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids, you need to read this! Based on Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, the 7 Habits of Happy Kids are habits that you can teach your students to help them develop into responsible leaders and learners. The school that I teach at is considered a "Leader in Me Lighthouse School", which means that we implement the 7 Habits of Happy Kids and other leadership tools in our school. The 7 Habits for Kids include the following: Habit #1: Be Proactive (You're in Charge) Habit #2: Begin with the End in Mind (Have a Plan) Habit #3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play) Habit #4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win) Habit #5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood (Listen Before You Talk) Habit #6: Synergize (Together is Better) Habit #7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best) These 7 Habits are great for teaching your students how to be leaders in their own lives. In the classroom, I use the language of the 7 Habits daily. I start the year off introducing one at a time, and spending about a week on each habit. We have discussions, role play, and give examples of students in the classroom who are demonstrating the habits. Once the students really understand each one, I start having the students give compliments to one another based on the habits. Some examples of how students can use these habits include: Be Proactive- Students take initiative to get their work done instead of you having to remind them. They also choose their moods and attitudes. Begin with the End in Mind- Students have a plan for different things. Examples include setting goals for themselves and planning ahead when working on a project. Put First Things First- Students make their classroom work a priority before doing a "quiet choice" or other option. They can also practice this habit at home by doing their homework first before playing. Think Win-Win- Students work together to make sure that problems are solved with a win-win solution. A Win-Win is a compromise where everyone feels that they've won. Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood- Students listen to all directions before asking questions, listen to others without interrupting, and try to consider the viewpoints of others. (This is a hard one for my second graders!) Synergize- Students work together and use their strengths to make the group the best that it can be. Sharpen the Saw- Students take care of themselves by having fun, execising their mind and body, and spending time with friends and family. Once students understand the meaning of the habits, then it's time to have them start demonstrating the habits at school and at home. You will really notice a difference in your students and classroom culture when they begin to use these in their own lives! It is so wonderful to see them develop into confident, responsible leaders. Here is a picture of a tree that I use in my classroom to display the 7 Habits (the tree is part of the book): If you would like to read more about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids or the Leader in Me program, click here. Below, I've also shared a freebie for using the 7 Habits in your classroom. This freebie is a set of awards that you can use when you "catch" one of your students demonstrating the 7 Habits. The kids LOVE to get these and the parents also enjoy seeing them come home. Just click on the picture to download the award certificates for free! What are some ways that you incorporate leadership into your classroom?
