Schedule charts and Memorization

I found this great website called Mrs. Riley. Here is a link about who they are. I have signed up for a 4 month subscription to make chore/schedule charts for the children. And I have to say....Big T and Sweet E love them! We have only used them for a couple of days, but it is already a big help! Here is a picture of all the pages I printed off...and it was a lot!

I then proceeded to cut all the cards out and laminate them. I use something similar to this clear shelf paper to laminate things like this and our school ID cards. I think I finished this whole process at like 2 in the morning. Don't ask...I started very late, but at least it's done. Except for the new cards I made. LOL This is what the charts look like.

This was the set up that the children saw first thing in the morning. I forgot to put a card up for breakfast (but I have made one since then). It's great because I can pull each card off.....

and change it when I need to. Because I put velcro strips on the "board" and squares on the back of each card.

Now I just need to find out the best way to store the cards so I don't have to go through all of them each time looking for one in particular. Any ideas for me? Maybe a index card holder with dividers? Hmmm...I will have to think about it.

Oh..and I should add that I got my notification "packet" sent off to the local school district and have received my receipt back that they did get it. :-) So, that is one less thing to worry about for now.

Oh...why not. I think I will show our School ID's as well...minus the personal information. I even made one for Little E. Last years cards came in handy at places like JoAnns, IMAX and museums. So I wanted to make sure we had some this year as well.

Oh...I guess I have 2 more things to post. Our Bible memorization. First up is the complete Proverbs 9:10 that they worked on last week.

And this next verse is just the first half of Proverbs 10:5. We will work on the rest of it the last half of this week.

So, how do you laminate things? I looked at the laminators at the office depot stores and they run somewhere around $60-$80 and I can't afford that right now.
