Back to school means trying to establish some routine for my littles. It also means an influx of emails and new expectations from their teachers that has my mind spinning attempting to keep them straight.
So instead of constantly rechecking emails and their online portal to figure out their 5 different user names and passwords, I simplified things and added it to their daily checklist.

I have a whole blog post linked above that goes over how my kids chores work using zones (which means they are assigned an area to clean and rotate areas which teaches them how to responsibly clean all the different spaces in a home). There’s even an editable printable on the post.
For the Daily Kids checklist I took that same template from the zone chore charts and edited it to fit what my kids need to do everyday. The lists are simple, but I want them to have some accountability to make sure their backpack is packed, teeth are brushed, and they are ready to go when carpool is here instead of last minute running down the stairs to grab their socks and homework folder.
I haven’t tested these out yet on my kids, that will start tomorrow, but since they are already familiar with their zone chore charts, they should pick up on these fairly quickly.
The chart is separated into 2 columns. The left side are the tasks they need to get done, while the right side is homework focused. I included a spot to sharpie or wet erase marker in their spelling words so everyday they are looking at them.
At the very bottom I included a spot for their user names and passwords for their online learning.
** I do have these sized to print as HALF of a page of paper. Feel free to resize to your need.
Hopefully these are helpful for your littles as you try and establish a more fluid routine and comment below if you have any tried and true suggestions on what works well with your kids!
Until next time,
