Oh how I love the 7 Habits... ideas for a habit tree and a freebie!

So like 5 years ago, I participated in a little book club after school. We read and discussed Leader and Me. I gotta tell ya I LOVED IT IMMEDIATELY! Creating leaders one child at a time starting in kindergarten, yes pleaseSIGN ME UP! My school began implementing pieces of the process and this year, we will begin with our beautiful mission statement posted in our main foyer. I *might* be a little excited!! The easiest way to get your feet wet is to read the book and start using the vocabulary with your students. You can slowly build by teaching the habits, setting goals and creating a data notebook. I have had a tree for the last few years, I use data notebooks and teach the vocabulary. My kids set personal and academic goals for themselves. It is AH~Mazing! Today, I spent a few hours in my classroom. NO one was there except me and I won’t lie. I LOVED the alone time and I got A LOT done, including my new and improved Habit Tree. I am sharing this freebie with you there are two versions: Plain or Zebra. J I have a couple of 7 Habit type products in my little shop if you are just getting started. If you have questions please ask. J
