J and I have been reading a second book from the Summer Readathon with MeMeTales and PBS this week – Good Habits to Have. J is coming up to 3 and we are starting to get some…. ummmmmm interesting habits come to light – he’s a very sensitive child things upset him that T is fine with – and he’s emotional there is no denying it and one of the things that he’s not good at is trying new things.
Join us this summer and get 4 weeks of fun activities to create and learn straight to your inbox.
One of the habits in the book is Trying new things – and we’re getting better with trying new foods – with help of a few ideas that I posted about yesterday, but there are other things that he isn’t trying – walking for a time when he’s tired – I often end up carrying both him and T at the end of a walk. But positive reinforcement of when he does do it really helps him.
So based on the themes and the 2 characters in good habits to have I have been making some reward charts and I wanted to share them with you. We are really focusing on the trying for J but I know each child is different so wanted to share a reward chart with you for each of the 4 habits in the book. It would be great to read the book with your child as part of week 3 of the readathon and then talk about ways in which they could work on those habits with you.
- being kind reward chart
- trying reward chart
- confidence reward chart
- honesty reward chart
- blank chart
If you would like to get a little crafty with your reward chart – then I suggest looking at Red Ted Art and her handmade reward chart.
