I have posted tons of information on chores (see link for all of them together: http://positiveparenting3-6-5.blogspot.com/search/label/Chores ). Likewise, I have posted a lot about reading with your kids, having your kids read, etc. (Reading instruction link: http://positiveparenting3-6-5.blogspot.com/search/label/reading%20instruction ) And building daily habits that teach good character to our kids. And, the other day, I described how you can create your own “summer reading program” for your kids.
Today I am going to post some links in which you can get free charts, checklists, etc. to use for developing these good habits of chores, reading, daily routines, etc. Some of them have charts that can printed and filled in while others have “editable” ones—that is, those that you can open in WORD or Excel and actually alter on the computer then print it out all created for your needs. Happy chart making—and character building! Remember, it will be much easier to start some of these habits now when you do not have the busy-ness of school days/kids going to school/after school activities, etc.
