The Seven Habits of Happy Kids

"The Seven Habits of Happy Kids"

Stephen Covey's book, The Seven Habits of Happy Kids, is one that will be read and applied each day in our classroom.  The habits are as follows...

BE PROACTIVE...I am a responsible person. I am in charge. I choose my actions, attitude and moods.

SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD...I listen to others without interruption. I try to see things from their viewpoint. I am confident in voicing my own ideas.

THINK WIN-WIN...I balance the courage of getting what I want with consideration of what others want.

BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND...I plan ahead and set goals. I look for ways to be a good citizen.

PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST...I spend my time on things that are most important. I set priorities.

SYNERGIZE...I value other people's strengths and learn from them. I seek out other people's ideas because I know that by learning with others we create better solutions than anyone of us can alone.

SHARPEN THE SAW...I takecare of myself. I spend time with family and friends. I find meaningful ways to help others.
