With most of us not leaving the house and kids home from school during this pandemic, I thought I’d create a kid schedule printable to help! We’ve already been home for a week during our spring break and the kids are bickering more and we have no structure. I’m not a routine person, but it really helps with kids.
My first-grader’s teacher sent a helpful schedule (source unknown) so I made it my own and am looking forward to trying it. I’ll leave a blank one below so you can adapt it to your own family.
Let me know if you use it! I’d love to hear.
You can also laminate them and let the kids check them off with a dry erase marker as the day goes along.
We are three days into the schedule and it’s really working! The first day was the hardest because the kids were used to doing whatever they wanted, when they wanted. But by the second day they were starting to like it! And by the third day they were telling me what was next and looking forward to certain parts.
The first day one kid gave gave me sass so I decided to make a reward system.
If you complete a full day and check off each hour you get a kid coupon!
If you sass back or pick fights with your sibling you have to draw from the consequence jar.
First scheduled day
Here’s how the first day went down on Sunday. I shared them in my Instagram Stories. Are we connected on Instagram yet?
Do you have any systems in place that are working well? Or have you tried this schedule? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
