Time management for children
Weekly Agenda Page
I like to develop a weekly agenda page for each child in the family. They have their own page posted on the refrigerator or bulletin board.
Record all Weekly Activities – School, Home and Extra Curricular
At the beginning of each week, I record all their activities, music lessons, group activities, sports, etc. I also record their special activities at school so they remember to bring library looks, physical education clothing, and musical instruments. It also includes any chores that they have to do around the house. If you prepare it on the computer, many things don’t change from week to week.
Record Additional Activities for the Week – Test, Projects, Parties
The children will add to the page, tests and projects that have been assigned at school. Beff you start this habit for them when they are young, it teaches them how to organize their time. You will be helping to instill in them a habit that will last them a lifetime.ore they can play, watch TV or have screen time they have to complete everything on their list.

Paper or an AppI like paper because I can see everyone’s week at a glance without switching between screens and accounts. But if you enjoy technology because you can access information from anywhere at any time try Choice Works for scheduling your children’s activities. It allows you to select activities and list them by picture for non-reading children or in words.
