I have had a few too many unfinished projects on my plate lately, and decided to clean this one up. I got this idea from Lisa, and love it. This was started when Bella started school, and today I spent a total of about an hour, and finished the whole thing up.
It's a "YES" chart for the kids. It's set up like a game board, and the kids each have a "game piece". When I ask them to do something, and they respond "yes", complete the task without being reminded 500 times, and I don't have to raise my voice, they get to move 1 square. Their game piece starts in the "backyard", moves to the amusement park, the farm, the beach, on a pirate ship, and eventually to a castle. There are prizes along the way. I put 3 different kinds of stickers on squares. When they reach that particular sticker they get a prize. The girls decided what their prizes would be for each thing, and we can change it the next time around the board (I wrote on it with a wet erase marker).They are excited to do it, and I'm excited for it to work. I'm sure I'll be implementing a new motivation plan before too long, because we all know they have to be rotated.
I have decided to have a giveaway and give 1 lucky winner their very own "YES" chart. All you have to do is leave a comment on THIS post, telling me one motivation that works well for your children. Only one entry per person. The contest will end at midnight on Saturday, October 18.
