Works for Me Wednesday- Chore Chart
Actually, I owe this bright idea to my sister. But, since she used to steal lots of my stuff without asking, I decided to return the favor!
We've always struggled with getting CJ (age 7 1/2) to do her chores each week. Now, we have a DAILY chore chart that stays on the fridge. Each day, she's responsible for things such as making bed, emptying back pack, and checking living room (which means getting all of her stuff out). Then, she has one "big" chore 4 days a week (cleaning room, emptying trash cans, etc.).
CJ likes checking her chart each day when she gets home. By breaking it into small increments, she realizes that it's easier to get things done. So far, it's been wonderful.
