Building Everyday Leadership in All Kids

An Elementary Curriculum to Promote Attitudes and Actions for Respect and Success


Building Everyday Leadership in All Kids emphasizes that anyone can be a leader—and it’s never too early to start learning what leadership means and how to lead. This resource engages all emerging leaders, at all emotional and academic levels, by taking a full, practical approach to building personal and group leadership attitudes. The easy-to-use activities, in categories such as Understanding Leadership, Communication, Working with Others, Problem Solving, and Making a Difference, are designed to promote group interaction, build self-confidence, and allow students to explore personal understanding.

Many activities are grouped for grades K–2 or 3–6, while others can be used with some minor adaptations for any age in the range. A special set of activities is specifically geared toward kids who are transitioning to middle school.

Digital content includes customizable reproducible forms.

Praise for Building Everyday Leadership in All Kids
“As teachers, we play an important role in fostering leadership in our students so they can contribute constructively to their classrooms, their school communities, and to the societies they live in. Building Everyday Leadership in All Kids is a prime resource for learning how to teach these critical skills.”—Professionally Speaking

“Ms. MacGregor provides hands-on activities that may involve some preparation on the part of the group leader, but the payoff [is] worth it every time! Students loved every lesson or activity we tried . . . I highly recommend this book to school counselors at the elementary level and also suggest that counselors working with older grades check out the other books by the same author.”—The Adventurous School Counselor blog
