Back to School

Well today was the day.... the kids headed back to school.  
We've got the morning routine down 
(although Keith was training and missed all the fun). ;)

This year, with Boy being in third grade, there will be a considerable amount of homework coming home (my niece is a year ahead of him, so I got to see firsthand what she was bringing home!).  The twins will also have a little more homework than they were used to in kindergarten.  To make afternoons/evenings a little smoother, I'm trying out an after-school routine chart (thanks Pinterest!)  The idea is that they can check off the items on the to-do list, and if they succeed each day, there will be a reward or treat on the weekend. I haven't quite worked out all the details, but will keep you posted!  

Here is the sheet - each child has their own sheet. 
It's in a plexiglass holder so they can use a dry-erase marker to check off each item, 
and then cross off the day of the week as they complete the tasks.


Above this one is a weekly calendar where I will list 
out the activities and events for the week. 
This week is pretty slow as school just started today, 
and soccer won't begin until next week!


I have also cleaned out the 31 organizer I have on the fridge,
 and that will now be command-central 
to keep track of papers coming home from school.





How are you getting ready back to school?
