Here's the thing about Works-for-me-Wednesday. I never know what to say...I ask myself..."what works for me?" And I invariably answer myself..."I don't know...what does work for me?"
Then yesterday I got an idea.
Yes...something that does actually work for me.
So...for your benefit...I will share!
Big Sis (my oldest child) started all-day Kindergarten in August. Which means that she is away from home for more of her awake hours then she is at home. When she is at home...I wanted to make sure that there were some things that got done (you know...like brushing teeth, having a snack, doing her 'homework', etc.). I still wanted to make sure everything was getting done and not in a big fat hurry as we try to get out the door in the morning. So...my friends...I came up with this, not terribly clever - not terribly sophisticated, little device to help us all.
It is a solitary card stock sheet with the Morning Schedule on one side and the Evening Schedule on the other...
And I hang it up on the fridge with this little clothespin magnet that Big Sis made and decorated in preschool. (If you can't tell...because sometimes I can't...it's supposed to look like a bird)
So in the morning...we look at the sunshine side and then sometime when Big Sis is at school I flip it over for our crescent moon with a view.
Here's why it works. It keeps me on track and helps me to remember what we need to be doing and what needs to happen next. There is time built into the schedule for little things to happen and...honestly...if we don't follow the schedule perfectly...no big deal. But for the most party...this is the routine on school days. I do like it and...it's workin'!
To see what is working for other people... see this post at Rocks in My Dryer.
But before you go...gimme some comment luv, will ya?
