Burying I CAN'T

The Leader in Me paradigm sees that every child is capable, every child is a leader. This paradigm changes everything.

This week we talked about using Proactive Language vs. Reactive Language.  Being Proactive means taking responsibility for your actions, not blaming others, having a positive "can do" attitude, and never giving up.  Then, we talked about being reactive.  Next, we went outside and buried a common reactive word (CAN'T).  Instead of saying I can't, we will say, "I will try, I think I can."
