Discuss with kids what responsibility means and why it is important. Share what some of your responsibilities are, then talk about what kinds of behaviors and responsibilities are expected of them. Use the magnets provided to talk about specific tasks and behaviors.
Personalize the top board by writing the child's name in the space provided. Help the child decide on goals for the coming week and place the appropriate magnets under the Responsibility/Goal heading. Tailor the chart to the child's individual needs by using a dry-erase marker on the blank magnets to create customized goals; erase and re-use!
As goals are reached, allow kids to choose a reward magnet and place it under the day the goal was completed. Talk about how the accomplishments make them feel.
Encourage independence by asking kids to check the chart regularly. Reward and reinforce positive behavior by establishing a special treat when a specified number of goals are accomplished in a given week.
