A wonderful help to our summer days are some of these little Summer Passports that I make for my boys. They help with giving them some structure to their days, of what is expected without me yelling out reminders. The boys love them and so do I. This year, I added a few items. Specifically the attitude gradient :)
The goal for this summer: after they finish their journal, chores, reading and other practices (like the trumpet for one boy and hooked on phonics for another), all with a good attitude, they will earn their one hour of screen time. And after the week and a hopefully filled up Passport, I will happily dole five dollar bills. The boys are looking forward to earning some money and also filling out their Passports.
Summer, we're ready!
