2 Back to School Lists

Here are 2 back to school lists that are great for kids who need to be able to see and feel their progress through their list.

The morning routine list is magnetic – you can hang it on your fridge or on a cookie sheet.  You can also make this as a hook and loop list if you prefer.  It’s fully customizable so you can choose your pictures and write your own text:

Make your checklist magnetic. You can buy pre-printed magnets, or go to www.thetripclip.com and print your own!

The school schedule is hook and loop so it can be easily carried from room to room, but you can make it magnetic too if you prefer! Like the morning routine list, you can choose your own pictures and write your own text.

My kids are doing online school only, and our district has set it up so they half their classes on Mon/Thurs, and the other half on Tues/Fri:

Free Lunch Box Packing List

This Monday I’m offering a free lunch box packing list.  This works great for kids who are packing lunch to take to school, and for ones who are doing online school at home! I plan to prepare some fruits and veggies and sandwich ingredients to keep in the fridge so that the kids can easily find and make their own lunch during their lunch break from online school. This list will help them remember to keep their meal healthy and well-balanced, and hopefully help them prepare their meal on their own!

Your kids can pack a healthy lunch all by themselves with the Lunch Packing Checklist. You can choose the categories that make sense for your family, and customize the options to match your kids’ tastes and the contents of your refrigerator.
