The Language of Leader in Me

It's very interesting to see how the language of Leader in Me has 'taken hold' in our school.  Today, in third grade, we were going over a reading comprehension test which the children had taken last week.  One of the stories in the test was a fable about a lazy grasshopper who watched some hardworking ants storing food for the winter, while he relaxed in the sun.  When I asked the students to tell me the message or lesson in the story, one said, "The grasshopper wasn't beginning with the end in mind,' and another said, "He didn't put first things first."  A third student said, "He should've been more proactive and helped the ants."  Steven Covey would be proud!
