I LOVE chore charts!
Miss Sarah has had one since she was TWO —
It incorporated out nightly bedtime routine but had her picking up different toys, brushing her teeth, laying out clothes for the next day, etc.
Obviously, the older she gets, the more I tweak it for her abilities. Now she has piano practice and reading sandwiched in there – but it’s still a sheet that she can check off the accomplishments and we see the progress over the week.
The big question is allowance: yes or no, and then how much?
Right now, I let her earn “points”. We use the points to turn in for fun stuff like a manicure at a local salon, going to movies (think $2 winter kid’s film series with the $25 Marcus gift cards I got on Black Friday), trip to Culver’s (she earns free treats through the school reading program), etc.
