My Students

Leadership skills are a must in life, the ability to cope and deal with obstacles can be a challenge. I would like to help my students to become better leaders in the classroom and our school.

I teach in a high poverty school and a majority of my 21 students receive free breakfast and lunch.

As a class, we have read the 7 Habits of Happy Kids and students enjoyed it, now I want to expand this unit into a year long leadership skill building activity.

My Project

Together we will read the continued adventures of the characters of 7 Oaks and use the activity sheets that go along with the stories. The games will be used in a rotating center so all of my students will have a chance to play it. I also plan on finding other activities to go along with this book.

My students will benefit from these books and games by teaching them leadership and coping skills that many students do not have, many come from broken homes and are just trying to survive day to day life.
