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.
How are you coping with the Corona virus situation? What’s the strangest thing that’s happened to you? Can you explain to me how this translates into a toilet paper shortage? haha!
In all seriousness, let’s pray together for the world — that the pandemic would cease and that people would look to Jesus during their time of need.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” — 2 Timothy 1:7
I’d love to hear what you’re doing to help others as well — the single mom, the elderly lady next door, those in financial stress. I’d also love to pray for you if you’re scared or don’t know Jesus or in are in a time of need. Drop me a comment or send me an email.
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?
