They were awesome. Little Bit's were pictorial and Sweetheart's was a list. They could carry them with them to the bathroom and back to their bedroom. But, they weren't working anymore.
- First of all, they had the routine down and didn't look at them anymore.
- Secondly, Sweetheart has added a few things to her morning routine (washing face, deodorant, etc.) and needed a new list as she couldn't remember to do everything every day.
- Thirdly, they need to NOT be in the same room at the same time. When they are both making their beds, it turns into playing really quickly.
And no, I don't make Little Bit clean the whole room. She can read "the" but can't read "your" so that's why I worded it that way. She knows just to clean her stuff!
However, now that they are actually doing all the things they NEED to do in the mornings, it is taking longer. Oh well. It's important.
So there you go Carrie.
My next step, after they are well established on this new routine, will be to help Sweetheart think about how she could shorten her morning work by planning ahead the night before. (pick up room quickly before bed, have clothes picked out, etc.) She likes having time to play before school so maybe that will help.
