My school is in the beginning stages of implementing the Leader in Me program, which is based on Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I really love the foundations of the 7 habits, and the focus on learning to take responsibility for yourself, and then learning how to work with other people and lead by example. These are traits that we want our students to have, but it’s important to teach them explicitly.
One small step that I’m taking in my classroom is posting the language of the 7 habits so that it begins to become part of the way we speak and think in my class. I designed these posters and then printed them on card stock, laminated them, and attached them to the wall with a hot glue gun.
You could print them on any color paper you’d like and arrange them however they would best fit in your room. I’m attaching them here for free use for other Leader in Me schools. If you use them please tag me on Instagram, I’d love to see how yours turn out!
