Routine charts to help kids get ready in the morning

brush teethGetting kids ready in the morning can be quite challenging to put it mildly. When kids sense that you are in a hurry they seem to start moving in slow motion. You need to get them to school or day care on time but there are many things that need to be done before then such as eating breakfast, getting dressed, brushing teeth, making beds and doing whatever you have to do in the morning. These morning routine chart printables will help you encourage them to get everything done as quickly as possible.

After a while getting ready in the morning becomes habit and you won’t even need reward charts to make it happen!

We offer a selection of free morning routine chart printables to help get kids get ready for school in the morning. We have routine charts for a one week period and charts for a two week period. You can complete the chore list or list of things to do in the morning. If the template that you selected does not have a list of tasks to complete then you can add your own list.

How to Use Routine Charts

Before you start, decide on the list of things that you would like them to do in the morning. Discuss your expectations with your child. Write the chore list on your reward chart. Decide ahead of time what the reward will be if there will be a reward. It can be a small toy, a visit to their favorite park, an outing to the zoo or anything that you decide on together. Some children are happy to receive stickers and don’t even ask for a reward. You can decide that your child needs to receive a certain number of stickers to get the reward. If she doesn’t get enough stickers you can make the reward smaller or give a partial reward. For e.g. in order to get your full allowance, you need 10 stickers. If you get 60% of the stickers you get 60% of the allowance. There are many ways to decide on a reward system. Find one that works for you and your kids.
