Welcome to our 3rd & 4th grade
Our Daily commitment to being our best:
7 Habits of a happy Kids
HABIT 1: Be PROACTIVE
We'll be learning about the 7 habits that will make us successful in our MAC (and life). We'll begin with "Be Proactive." We'll read about the Michael Jordan story in "The Salt in His Shoes." We'll talk about taking responsibility for our actions, not blaming others, having a positive "can do" attitude, and never giving up. We'll read other books about being proactive and we'll share our experiences.

reading or hearing this, keep it for life-

starting here, right in this room, when you turn around?
