Summer Days

20120714-000457.jpg

Trying to teach my children balance in the lazy, hazy days of summer… Before screen time they must choose an activity from each of the four categories listed in the top left corner. So, for example, Noah wants to get better at French so his learning time is a French teaching app on my iPad (yes, technically that’s screens). Hailee has been memorizing a song on the piano for her creative.
The jobs are listed so that my house is pretty much clean by Saturday.
The black lines of the job board are black permanent marker and the green is dry erase, that way I can erase and change jobs without erasing the grid. On the top half of each square is one of the housecleaning jobs that I have figured out. I add another small task to the bottom of the square the night before so that I can be flexible with that one. For example there may be a lot of towels on the clothesline so I add that to Noah’s job for the next day.
For the most part the kids have kept busy with a variety of activities!
