Post a list with each step (or using pictures for children too young to read). These clear, concise lists help kiddos who become distracted quickly or who may frequently forget steps in the morning. As you practice the routine, you may have to make revisions based on what works best for your family.
PARENTS: When your children say they are ready for school, have them read each step back to you to confirm they completed each step. Through this practice, children can increase personal responsibility, self-monitoring, and self-correction.
