Consider the conditions these kids have come from after reading the previous post, and then read the following.
This week I took all the elements we had learned so far and put them together to make this weeks lesson about leadership. I asked the kids what they thought they should do to act like a leader. The following is a sampler platter of answers from all of my classes:
-no talking when teacher is talking
-do something before you are asked
-have respect for teachers and each other
-believe in yourself
-keep trying when something is hard
-reach for your goals
-help each other
-be good at dance =) (more of a bonus answer lol)
….I think they are grasping the picture
“I believe in myself to be great. I can be great if I choose to be. I can choose to be a leader” – the mantra we have built on the last few weeks.
