|My dear friend noticed that "Oops!" is misspelled! Dang it! Wasn't going to re-do the whole chart...oh well!|
Here's how this chart works at The White House :0)
*Always start the day with your clip on Good Job
*Positive behavoir/good choices= move clips up! Being on green is great!
*Negative behavior/bag choices = move clips down...not so good!
Here's the wording on the chart from top to bottom:
*3 minute (time out) Adjust these for age
*5 minute (time out)
We have found that this really works well for us because it helps Mommy and Daddy look for positive behavior rather than mostly negative! Every human, young or old, feeds off of positive praise, right!
My added touch were the picture clips. I just printed out "happy" pictures of them and the hot glued them to a clothes pin.
|Jackson and Nixon's special cup on the left|
This is a great visual for him to see how many he HAS and how many more he NEEDS! Because once he gets 30 fuzzy balls, then he will get to go somewhere special...his choice! It could be a trip to the aquarium or splash park. Something special, fun and easy.
Our first trip will be tomorrow! He reached his 30 fuzzy ball goal, so I'm sure we will be planning an impromptu fun trip in the morning.
So now what? We keep going...we plan to add 30 more, which will teach him numbers up to 60.
Happy Learning with your little ones!
