It doesn’t matter if you’re homeschooling your children or simply looking for them to get off screens, this simplified homeschool checklist for parents will be sure to inspire some creativity amongst children.
Originally I developed this homeschool checklist for parents during COVID 19 lockdowns, but they’ve proven to be helpful to parents and teachers beyond that time.
These homeschool checklists are for parents looking for a flexible learning program. Children can simply be inspired by the open and flexible nature of what is listed on the clipboard.
Sort something, count something, fix something… the list goes on.
These simple instruction can act like a can of worms and bring out all sorts of ideas with children.
These homeschool checklists gives your child an opportunity to get creative and avoid the phrase, “I’m bored”. To learn more about boredom with children, I encourage you to read this great article about the benefits of bordom. It ties in nicely to these clipboard tasks.
Additionally, it leans into each individual child’s interests. A bonus is that it also doesn’t discriminate on age! Suitable for all ages. You can give this to a 5 year old or even a 25 year old.
Homeschool Checklists for Parents
Included in this pack are 8 clipboards with 8 task prompts.
The prompts vary on each page so your children are unlikely to get bored with the daily or weekly tasks.
It can encourage children to try something new or experiment with tasks they might have done before but don’t expand on.
Taking things further, you might like to add a checklist to your fridge or a communal location. I like that it gives Possum (aged 8 years) and Boo (aged 5 years) a chance to look at it and decide what task they’d like to start with.
They also love to cross through each task as it’s completed. How good is that!
A blank clipboard is also available within this pack and it’s deal for children to add their favourite prompts.
This blank clipboard gives you the option to write your own tasks or have your child write their own based on some favourites.
This valuable resource can be structured or as flexible as you like, you are only limited with your imagination.
You can put up a new clipboard each day, others will want to wait for their children to complete all the tasks.
It’s understandable as some children enjoy returning to projects and adding to them over time.
