A la Dick and Jane
What seems like forever ago I asked my mother in law to draw some pictures for me, ala Dick and Jane. I figured the kids needed a little help remembering what they needed to do in the mornings before breakfast. She finished them a long time ago, a few months later I got them put into frames, and then, a few months after that (this week) I got them hung up in the kids room. I absolutely love them!
We Get Dressed by Ourselves
We Put Away Toys
Don't Forget to Pray
With the hustle and bustle of the morning, it is so easy for my kids to forget to say their morning prayers. This lovely little reminder has become invaluable as they are actually remembering a bit more than normal. Win!
We Make The Bed
I wish I could have let him go back and make his bed, but since we have been late three times already this week, I didn't want another tardy for him. But the fact that it is working makes me over the moon happy!
Just a gentle little reminder can work wonders, it seems.
Thank you, Chris, for the wonderful pictures!
