I have a “Can Do” attitude. I  
choose my actions, attitudes 
and moods. I don’t blame 
others. I do the right thing 
without being asked, even when nobody is looking. 

I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference.

I am an important part of my classroom. I look for ways to be a good citizen.

I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I should say no to things I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am organized.

I want everyone to be a success.  I don't have to put others down to get what I want.  It makes me happy to see other people happy.  I like to do nice things for others.  When a problem comes up, I help think of a way to solve it.  We can all win!

I listen to others' ideas and feelings.  I try to see things from their viewpoint. I listen to others without interrupting.  I am confident in voicing my ideas.

I get along well with others, even people who are different from me. I work well in groups. I seek out other ideas to solve problems. I 
know that “two heads are better than one.” I am a better person when I let other people into my life 

and work. 

I take care of my body by eating right, exercising, and getting sleep. I spend time with my family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and places.
