During our morning wake-up ritual, Ella always asks, "is today a school day, mama"? So, I take a moment to talk about our day. I ordered this visual activity chart from akidsday.com to give E some transparency in routine. Hopefully, this little chart will help us both maintain a predictable rhythm to our days--especially since mama starts work again on Monday.
Don't want to clutter the tree with "every" little thing (make bed, brush teeth, etc.) we do--just bigger "events." The little magnet labels make it easy for Ella to attach to the tree chart and flexible for changes in schedule.
