Stephen Covey's book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" talks about the circle of control, the circle of influence, and circle of concern. I have simplified this concept for younger students by talking about what they can and cannot control.
This resource includes two levels of sort based on the developmental level of students. The lower level sort includes only what they can and cannot control. The higher level sort includes what they can influence by their words or actions. Finally, there is a page with 15 examples and editable boxes to write your own examples before printing.
