Time to get back into the hang of things for the school year. For us that meant I needed to spruce up our chore charts and our attitude charts. When my boys get home from school it’s hard to get them into the swing of things unless we have a set system for them.
Check out my Periscope about how I use our chore chart and attitude chart:
Our Chore Chart
When the boys get home from school it helps to have a visual reminder on what our routine is. They can go to their chore chart and move their pins down as they go and if they lose focus I can point them to the chart.
Our Attitude Chart
I created the attitude chart when I saw that a lot of teachers were using the same thing in their classes. My boys need a visual reminder of when their behavior was not acceptable. They can lose attitude points for different kinds of bad behavior and to earn back the points they have to either do extra homework or an extra chore.
They can also earn attitude points when I see them doing something great like being nice to their brother or helping out without being asked.
