There are many ways to keep track of the chores, work, and other tasks kids have to do, but this spot chart has been a perennial favorite in our house. I created it when the kids were preschool age, and it has made its way back to our refrigerator almost every year since. The kids use bingo markers or dot markers to cross off the things they have done.
When the kids were little, the daily columns included things like “brush teeth,” “get dressed,” and “make bed.” These columns for my current middle schoolers now include things like math, writing, music practice, foreign language work, and exercise. The “Other Stuff” boxes in the lower right are used for things that they do once or twice a week, like “take out trash” or “music lesson.”
