We are a Leader In Me school, which means that we are working hard to live a life following the Seven Habits:
Begin with the End in Mind
Put First Things First
Seek First to Understand, then be Understood
Sharpen the Saw
In order to better live these habits we need to have a shared mission. During the first week of GT, each grade answered the following questions: What are we here to do? How are we going to accomplish it? Why are we doing this. The kids added their ideas to a chart on our board with post-it notes.
We then looked for patterns within our answers and used those patterns to create one shared mission. I think the kids did great.
