This has been such a weird time of adjustment. When school was in session, we had a morning routine down pat and it was usually pretty smooth. Now, we are all sleeping in later (except Caleb), and our routine is definitely not streamlined. While I haven't been utilizing a strict schedule with the kids, we have a pretty loose list of what we do on a daily basis.
I have wavered back and forth between letting Caleb just be and play all day and giving him a few structured activities. In the end, I realized he likes to learn and he thrives with just a little bit of structure, so we are doing some instructional learning in the mornings. The rest of the day is pretty loose.
But there are three things I want him to do each morning - Brush his teeth, make his bed, and get dressed. So I made this little chart for him to check off, and I'm keeping it with his instructional items.
Download and print, it's that easy. If you have access to a laminating machine, laminate it and use dry-erase markers so you can reuse it!
Hope that helps!
