With a new school year comes a new To Do List and helping our children get back into the routine of having daily homework. Cindy Royal created this adorable chart to help her granddaughter stay organized. Check it out below!
Oh, how I recall school mornings and school nights with the constant asking of the kids, “Did you do …..?” and “Have you done ….?” to with the replies were often “Not yet.” or “I forgot.” I made this To Do List geared towards my 1st grade granddaughter, but with a simple changing of the specific items to do, it can be utilized for any of your elementary school kids. This interactive ‘chart’ makes getting those routine things done a little more fun when the child can move a magnet with the completion of each item and watch their own progress.
I started with a standard 10 x 15 cookie sheet and some strong 5/8″ round magnets. For ease in adhering my background to the baking sheet, I printed my patterned paper onto Cricut Printable Vinyl with my Cricut Imagine Machine, using the Blast Off and Imagine More Cards cartridges.
I decided to break it into 3 sections: Morning, Night and Homework. The Morning and Night sections are arranged so that with every item done on the list, the “I have” magnet can be placed over the NOT on the item, revealing an icon where it originally was while at the same time indicating an item as completed. The same is done with the Homework section. Moving a subject completed from the “to do” side to the “done” side reveals an A+.
Maybe this will make the school year go a little smoother.
