Writing and the 7 Habits
Science and the 7 Habits
Literature and the 7 Habits
Mrs. Karg, a Discovery parent, is part of the Wells Fargo and Scholastic Books Reading First program, through which she reads books aloud to first grade students and donates those books to the classroom. Mrs. Karg and the students discuss the book and make connections to characters and the 7 Habits. Students are able to give specific examples from the text that support their understanding.
History and the 7 Habits
Students in Ms. Steele's class are now naturally making connections between the 7 Habits and their History content. This group of students noticed how the teachings of Buddha focus on taking care of yourself and finding balance between indulgence and deprivation.

Dr. Seuss and the 7 Habits
Mrs. Christine Dixon wanted to tie Read Across America, 7 Habits, and mentoring Kinder Buddies together, so a last minute idea became a lesson that students were beyond engaged in, which included reading, writing, creativity, synergizing and incorporated Leader in Me. It definitely was a stretch in their ability to synergize together AND it was challenging for sure! Students presented their digital 7 Habits Dr. Seuss book to their Kinder buddies.

Live, Love, Learn, Leave a Legacy Habit #7 (Sharpen the Saw)
Students in Mrs. Kim Cole's Expo class watched the Live, Love, Learn, Leave a Legacy video. Students discussed the questions from the Leader In Me website connected to the video. Mrs. Cole asked her students, "What is a Legacy and what will they be remembered for?" Students had time to reflect and then shared their responses with their elbow partner. Students then had a share out (finding their voice). Students were then asked to reflect on the video again at home and they had to be ready to share for their next meeting. Students were asked to do a quick write on the following question: What will they be remember for?
