Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our class is using this activity guide, The Leader in Me, as an introduction to personal
leadership. All students have the capacity to lead in their own lives and affect those
around them by making positive choices. The Leader in Me provides students with
activities that will help them learn practical character and life skills that will lead to those
positive choices. Written to appeal to their age level, students are presented with fun
activities designed to get them thinking.

Your child is about to embark on an exciting journey, and our hope is that you will
ask your child how he or she is doing along the way. This activity guide gives you an
opportunity to engage, hands-on, in what your child is learning and will lead to many
teachable moments. Having your child reteach the content to you will give him or her
an even deeper understanding and will give both of you an opportunity to learn together!
Additionally

SA

The Parents Place is available at www.TheLeaderInMe.org. You will find ideas to use at
home involving the family and reinforcing your childs learning in a fun, interactive way.

This activity guide was made just for you, whoever you are or wherever
you live. The activity guide is called The Leader in Me because you have the
ability to be a leader. This activity guide will give you habits and tools that
will help you on your journey to being a leader.

What is a leader?

In the dictionary, to lead means to direct; to guide by influence.


Leaders get along well with others, are responsible, appreciate
peoples differences, and are problem solvers and creative thinkers.
Being a leader is finding and using your own strengths to influence
other people to find and use their strengths.

Who can be a leader?

Everyone has the power to be a leaderincluding you! Each person


has unique strengths and can make a contribution in and out of
school by sharing those strengths. Being a leader is not about being
popular or holding a position; its about using your strengths and
encouraging others to use theirs.

Why learn the 7 Habits?

SA

The 7 Habits are the road map to becoming a leader. They are life
skills you can use on the playground, in sports, with friends, at school,
and at home. Each of the 7 Habits will help you today, tomorrow, and
when you are an adult.

The 7 Habits
Habit 1: Be Proactive
I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do
not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when
no one is looking.
Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind

Habit 3: Put First Things First

PL
E

I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference.
I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my schools mission and vision.
I look for ways to be a good citizen.

I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should
not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.
Habit 4: Think Win-Win

I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. When
conflicts arise, I look for a win-win solution. I make deposits in my Relationship Bank Accounts.
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

I listen to other peoples ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoint (paradigm).
I listen to others without interrupting. I listen with my ears, my eyes, and my heart. I am
confident voicing my ideas.

Habit 6: Synergize

I value other peoples strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people
who are different than me. I work well in groups. I seek out other peoples ideas to solve
problems, because I know that by teaming with others, we can create better solutions than any
one of us alone. I look for Third Alternatives.

SA

Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw

I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep. I learn in lots of
places, not just at school. I spend time with family and friends. I take time to find meaningful
ways to help people. I balance all four parts of myself.

HABIT

Activity

Have you ever been really upset with something or someone?


Have you ever been so upset that it was hard to control your emotions?

Being in control of your emotions can be very hard. Even adults have to practice.
The good news is that it is up to you. No one can make you feel a certain way; you
have to allow them to upset you. By practicing Habit 1, Be Proactive, you will get
better at being in control of your emotions.

What is a good choice to make if you are very angry?

SA

Example: Take a deep breath.

Where do you like to go when you are angry or upset?

Who can you talk to if you are very sad?

If you would like, you may share your answers with a partner.

I have emotions every day.
Im in control and I stand tall,

In class, at play, and even in the hall!

SA

Now its your turn!


Write a poem on the lines below about taking responsibility for your

An opossum, sometimes called a possum, is


a great example of how to control emotions.
Have you ever heard of playing possum?

If you have, you would know that opossums use this trick when they are attacked. When an
opossum is attacked, it curls its body up, leaves its eyes and mouth partly open, makes its
legs stiff, slows its heartbeat, and plays dead. When the danger is gone, the opossum is fine.

SA

Even though it is really scared and wants to run away, it knows that it is best to stay calm
and wait for the danger to pass.
