The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Jaguars

Our school has adopted "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey. I think it's so great. I've had to bust out my copy of the book so I can keep up with my kids' new vocabulary. Ryan and I were disagreeing about something, and Braden told us "You guys need to synergize!" They are always talking about sharpening the saw, being proactive and begin with the end in mind. And I've been trying to use the habits when I'm trying to get them to do their homework before they play, First Things First!! So last night, our school went before the school board to show them how the program is going so far. One of the teachers wrote songs for each of the habits, and the 2nd graders were able to perform a few of them for the school board. Here is Sienna waiting for her performance time... And here is a video of just one of the songs...
