Builds self-esteem while teaching organisational skills, independence and positive behaviour
Discuss with the child what responsibility means and why it is important. Share what some of your responsibilities are, then talk about what kind of behaviours and responsibilities are expected of the child. Use the magnets provided to talk about specific tasks and behaviours
Personalize the top board by writing the child's name in the space provided. Help the child decide on goals for the coming week and place the appropriate magnets under the Responsbility/Goal heading. Tailor the chart to the child's individual needs by using a water-based marker on the blank to create customised name; erase and re-use!
As goals are reached, allow the child to choose a reward magnet and place it under the day the goal was completed. Talk about how the accomplishments make the child feel.
Encourage independence by asking the child to check the chart regularly. Reward and reinforce positive behaviour by establishing a special treat when a specified number of goals are accomplished in a given week
