The girls and I started a chart for school evenings and mornings to run a little smoother. Being a single mom has some disadvantages and getting everything done morning and night for two little people can be exhausting....so this is a way to organize our schedule and allow for the kids to have some independence. At 5 and 8 there were a lot of things they can do on their own that I just still always did for them, so we are exercising their abilities. :)
We've done some refining since we started and it's getting better. Like a rewards system for completing their daily list along with a sticker which if they accumulate 4 out of 5 we get to do something special like movie night. Here's our chart and our little treasure chest of rewards.
