Weekly Chores & Task ~ Makes my home SING :)

Making your home sing Mondays

"Making Your Home Sing Monday." It's a day when we share what we are doing to bless our families in our home. If you would like to join in, click here.

Well it's that time of year again where I need to update the girls chore charts. This is how I "Make My Home Sing!" week after week.  Chores are broken down by day for each girl. This helps them to know what they need to do around the house. This is beside making their bed, getting dress and brushing their teeth each mourning. It is placed into a clear page proctor along with a dry eraser maker. It is stored on the side of the refrigerator for easy excess. To make the from I use Edu Track (I can not say enough about how this product helps me not just with home schooling but with the running of my home!!!)

I loved your post. I am all about having children do chores. It helps teach them a work ethic, as it teaches them to work whether they want to or not!

They learn to get satisfaction out of being productive and accomplishing something! Not to mention it helps the house stay cleaner.

Thank you for linking up today. I am hoping to feel better tomorrow and get things back together around here!

I am going to have to get some lists like that going for this summer for my kiddos! They'll be home all day every day, so we'll give them some constructive stuff to DO! Lists always help me, so I'm sure it'll help them.

THat is awesome. I will have to check those out because I do chore charts too but yours are much cooler.

What a good mom you are! I love this idea and agree with momstheword, we have to teach our kids responsibility as well as a good work ethic, which is missing in so many of our kids these days. Great post.

I love this system that you have created.
It seems like an easy and efficent way to get chores done with out nagging.

Erin said...

My children have always done chores...we made more adjustments when they came home from traditional school to become homeschoolers. I think you have to be flexible and understanding when change needs to come.

Rhonda said...

Yes, chore charts are great! They help our home run much more smoothly. I also keep ours in a clear page protector and use dry erase markers. This makes our chart last for ages!!

We are just now starting a chore chart! I hope it works this well for me!

I used to keep a chore chart. But not so much now. I found that it was a little bit difficult for me to keep up with. I just don't do schedules very well. Maybe I'll start one again. I love yours!

I'm going to have to check out Edu Track. I need to start using something next year in order to start getting ready for that all important High School Transcript.

Take care my friend!
Hope you are doing well!
