Ideas for Use

Printable Chore Chart - Suggestions for Use

Always use specific 'chores' rather than general particularly with younger children, so they know exactly what is expected of them.

Also - not too many chores per week - try to keep it simple to start with.



Copy the size you would like to use - laminate and use a whiteboard marker to write in your weekly 'chores'.  I use the A3 size as it stands out a bit more.  You could also place a copy into a plastic cover and write on that.

Write your child's name on the line at the top.

We are about to start this with our 7 year old.  We hope to have a little family meeting and discuss what chores would be appropriate for his age (see below for ideas).

As each Heart Chore is completed it is the child's responsibility to tick that day.

At the end of the week we have decided to give pocket money of $1 for each year of age (thanks to Karyn for this tip!), so our son will receive $7 if all 'chores' are completed.  50c deductions will occur for infringements !!!!

Also 30% of the pocket money will go into their bank savings account just to try and encourage the saving habit.



Similar to above

WHOLE CLASS - Enlarge the A4 chart to poster size by using the enlarge setting on your printer.  Laminate for long term use.  Use this size for a whole class 'From the Heart Chore Chart'.

Decide on weekly 'chores' as a class.   Different students could be assigned responsibility for different 'chores'.

INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS - Use the A4 size or even smaller to make up individual chore charts.

Decide on the 'chores' for that week and write them on the chart - copy a chart for each child and have them glue them into their special 'From the Heart Chore Chart' scrapbook.

You could even include chores to be done at home as part of homework for example - play a game outside everyday this week.

It is up to each child to tick their charts each day.

At the end of the week share the whole class chart or individual charts in a sharing circle.  Discuss what needs to be improved and praise where appropriate.  You could even have a reward system if appropriate where a certain amount of ticks on the chart means free time, 5 minutes early to lunch, or a sticker etc (without focussing on the rewards too much - more the great feeling your heart has by completing your chores).

  • Hi im a volunteer at the Space and Technology Museum in Carnarvon while im teaching here and last week i leant them my laminated posters of your planets. you wouldn't beleive the amount of people visiting the museum who just loved them. They were close to the entrance of the museum and eveyone stopped to look at them first. We have many families who are travelling around Australia stop by and they have children in tow...often havent been to school for 3 months or so but they just love your posters that i have made. Im going to have to do another set as the museum which is manned by volunteers only doesnt want to give them up now. i hope you dont mind. Your logo k-3 teacher resource is still on the bottom of every poster i made up and so it is acknowledged.

  • Teaching KPP is easy. What i did at the beginning of the year is plan for both groups in small group time. Have the EA take the kindy's some days and you the PP and swap around on other days. Have large group where you are all doing the same thing and then split the group for development ability type activities. The EA is a godsend and if you have a parent or two as well who can help at table rotation time its fantastic.When doing the phonic sounds just do harder activities for the PP where the K are just sighting them sometimes for the first time. Simplify their activities. Both PP and K love the music and movement so not hard there and art and craft is pretty similar too. You'll find those who want to learn to read will be ready before you know it and there might even be some Kindy kids who want to do this too depending on their family background. You tube all ages love so use it and IWB activities lots. Good Luck!! and enjoy and tell the Year 1 and 2 teachers they cant have them they're yours!!
