With less than twenty-four hours till the first day of school, I made a quick list for my kiddos.
My kids are 15, 13, and 10. And yes, they still need
a kick in the butt focus on most school mornings.
Since I don't have my voice on a continuous loop, regaling them with constant reminders, I thought perhaps this list would be helpful.
I used this fantastic image from The Graphics Fairy to decorate the top of my list. I removed the original numbers and added my own little phrase to the blackboard.
I put it into a clear plastic sheet protector and added magnets to the back. With a dry erase marker, they can check off what needs to be done, and (hopefully) stay on task. Plus, I can add or remove tasks if it's necessary.
I'm not scared, I'll give you an update in a couple of weeks. Wish me luck!
