Chore Chart

July 21, 2007

Here is a larger picture of the chore chart we use. Each of our three children have one. This is our 5 year old’s chart, although one job is not on the board at the moment. As you can see, they simply move the jobs from the not done section to the done section when the job is completed. With all our jobs listed, we do not forget any. Also, as you can see, some of the items on the charts are not chores, per se, but are items they need to accomplish such as brushing their teeth. We use green magnets for daily tasks and yellow magnets for tasks that are only required on particular days.

Another thing we like about these charts is that jobs can be added and removed quite easily. For example, our oldest son works on math for 45 minutes every day in the summer, but he will not have this task once school starts.

But the absolute best part is how much the kids like it and how they work so hard to earn their treasure tokens.

I got this idea from a similar one on another blog, but for the life of me, I can’t remember where (too many diet cokes, y’all). I think it might have been a Works-For-Me-Wednesday post at Rocks in My Dryer.
