Following a daily schedule is a life-saver for families with kids. It gives structure and rhythm to kids’ days. And it eliminates arguments over what activity to do when (e.g. homework vs. electronics). But rectangular schedules, printed as a spreadsheet are boring. Turning them into a dial makes daily schedules interactive and fun. Plus kids can color and decorate the dial any way they want. Included in the download is a blank template that you can customize with your own family schedule.
One of the most challenging learning concepts for kids to understand is that it’s okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are a natural part of learning. But kids usually shut down and give up when they make a mistake. I’ve designed a coloring book to teach kids that mistakes are good. The book teaches them that mistakes are signals that tell us we need to do better and learn more (among many other good things). Here you can try out two pages from the coloring book “Mistakes Are My Superpower”.
