Tips and Resources for The Leader in Me

Share

A few weeks ago I shared how I broke up with my beloved clip chart, started using “Class Dojo” AND began implementing the program, “The Leader in Me“. 
You can read all about that fun here
It’s now almost 3 weeks later, we’re still going strong with “Class Dojo” and “The Leader in Me“.
 I thought I’d share how I’m using “The Leader in Me” program to help shape my thirds into proactive and collaboratively minded students.
The Leader in Me resources, ideas, posters, FREEBIES

Now, I don’t have access to the book (yet!)

I just ordered it! 2 Day Shipping with Amazon Prime! SCORE!

 So most of my information is really more like bits and pieces that I was able to scour from various blog posts, websites, and just plain ol’ intuition! But, those bits are working really starting to show progress, so I thought I’d share a few ideas and resources with you. 

First up, a Pin board... 

Check out this pinboard and follow LOTS of others by clicking here

Like all great ideas in the 21st century, I decided to dedicate a whole pin board to this program. All those bits and scraps I have collected are now organized for safe keeping. 
Videos, printables, other Leader Stuff all in one place! 
Next up… the 7 Habits. 
The heart of “The Leader in Me” program is the 7 habits.  If you’ve ever read, “The 7th Habits of Highly Effective People” then you’ll be very familiar with the habits in this program. They are pretty much the same, just reworked to be kid friendly. 
I went ahead and made some reference posters for my classroom.

As we learn about each habit, I keep it posted on the chalkboard and refer to it during our “Leader in Me” lessons. Then, I move them up to the space above the chalkboard. Well...  that’s the plan. We are still working on being “Proactive”. I figured we’d be working on that one for at least another month… 
Each day, we watch a quick video and discuss it’s over all message. The kiddos talk at their table, then we discuss it as a class. In the afternoon, I do a mini lesson with a focus on the habit we discussed in the am. 
I’ve been using this Prezi to help guide my instruction as well!

If you’re not familiar with Prezi, it’s a really cool interactive presentation system. I like to think of it as a glorified PowerPoint. It’s FREE to use as well! No program to download. Just click and go!  

Since we’ve been working on “Proactive” behavior, we’ve done bubble maps of things we can/can’t control. We also made a “Best of Me” brain map that the kiddos keep in their folders. 
Our latest lesson focused on what it means to be a good classmate.
Yeah… it’s not pretty, but it’s REAL life, people! We made this literally in the last 7 minutes of class. I was surprised we were able to get as much on there as we did!

I can’t wait to move on to our other habits and grow into the Leaders I know we can be! Stay tuned for more on this journey!

  1. Thank you! Thank you! Been looking all over the net for a complete set that I could download and print so I can used them in my class. You're the answer to my prayer^^* God bless!

  2. The presentation is so charming! We are planning to use these at our school this year and I (a parent volunteer) am helping with our own little supplemental take-home for parents for our home-school connection. If it's no trouble, I'd love to know which fonts were used so me can keep a consistent set style thing happening. 🙂 Thank you for sharing what you've created!

  4. Thank you times a million! These look so cute and are perfect for students to understand. The seven habits are such a good thing to learn at a young age. Thank you for all of your hard work!!

  5. I love your 7 Habit Posters. I plan to hang them in my classroom, because we plan on implementing The Leader in Me. There is now an eighth habit, Find Your Voice. Is there any chance that you will add it to this set in the near future?

    1. Thank you for the first 7 habits posters! I love seeing them hang on my classroom wall! I, too, would love to have the eighth habit poster, if and when you make one. That would be fantastic! Thanks for considering!

      1. I’d love to make another poster for you guys… the issue is I can’t find any information about an 8th habit on the website! LOL!

        1. The 8th habit is “Find your voice” according to the Teacher in Me trainer we had today.

          1. Yes! I’m trying to find out more information on what that means so the poster examples match up to what is in the book. These should be used in conjunction with the book. Not instead of the book.

  6. These are just the perfect addition to our implementation of the 7 Habits. Is there any chance that you might have them available in an editable version? Our primary and intermediate grades might like to change the wording just a smidge. Thanks so very much for your beautiful work!

    1. Hey Julie! So glad you like these posters. As they are freebie on my blog, I am not making them editable at this time. Thank you so much!

  7. The link is not pulling up the file of posters in the Google Drive. Can you email to me please?

    1. Hey Katie! You will need a google account to download anything from Google Files. This is simple as logging into a gmail account, or creating one. Once you have an account, you can download freebies like this one. Hope that helps!
