Supporting the 7 Habits at home!

February At Home Activity

This month’s Habit: Habit 3 Put First Things First

Activity: Plan one-on-one Time

Due Date: February 26th

Please see attached activities below. We would love to have you share your Plan for one-on-one Time with us by February 26th, so we can proudly display our families practicing the 7-Habits at home!

Habit #3 Put First Things First- "Work First, Then Play"

What this means: Focus on what is important, schedule the important things first. Don’t be a dreamer - stay focused!

“I spend my time on things that are most important.”

“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.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. Do your homework as soon as you come home from school.

2. Do something you have been putting off for a long time.

3. Think about your most important responsibilities. Do them first.
