Teaching this to the students is an eye opener for ourselves.


7 HABITS OF HAPPY KIDS

HABIT 1 - BE PROACTIVE

You’re in Charge

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

Have a plan

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 school’s mission and vision. I am prepared at all times. I think about how the choices I make now will affect my future. I think about the positive or negative consequences of my actions before I act. I look for ways to be a good citizen.

HABIT 3 - PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST

Work First, Then Play

I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I do things that I have to do before I get to do the things I want to do. I stay focused on what I’m doing and try to minimize distractions if I get off task. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.

HABIT 4 – THINK WIN-WIN

Everyone Can Win

I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I think about what other people want and not just what I want. I make deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts. I am kind to others and try to think of ways to make everyone happy. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives. I am a problem-solver when an issue comes up with another person.

HABIT 5 – SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD

Listen Before You Talk

I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings without interrupting. I try to see things from their viewpoints even if they are different from my own. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.

HABIT 6 – SYNERGIZE

Together is Better

I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people who are different from me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone.

I am humble.

HABIT 7 – SHARPEN THE SAW

Balance Feels Best

I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help others. I am always learning to become a

better person.
