Our new chore chart!

So many have asked so I will write it out here!

In a folder, I have put 7 sheet protectors (1 for each day of the week) and a dry erase marker. Try to use the glossy sheet protectors, they work best.

Each day of the week, the chores are the same. I wanted to keep track without saying, "I can't remember which one you didn't finish", so we have a page for each day. At the end of the week, the will get 5 pieces of candy for each day they have completed every chore they are supposed to have.

At the end of the week, if they have finished everything, for every day, then we will put into a jar, a few dollars so that they can buy something special for our trip to AZ. Once in AZ, they will be earning for the trip to WA.

In order to check off chores for the day, they MUST do their jobs throughout the day and have them checked. They will be re-checked at bed time to receive the actual check marks for the day.
