Mom, what’s my special today?!

The kids have specials every day at school including art, music, library, and gym. They need to wear sneakers on gym day and return their library books on library day.  Now, how to get them to remember what happens on what day?  I printed a chart, laminated it and posted it by the door leading out to the garage.  Days of the week go across the top, kids names go down the first column oldest to youngest and then I filled in each child’s special for each day.   Shoes go in a toy box turned shoe storage and library books are either in their hanging file (see previous post) or on the coffee table in the family room.   Occasionally, they’ll  forget to bring their books on library day, and when I realize this, I will not bring them to school for them, they gotta remember and learn to be responsible!
