I do not know about you, but it seems like in the spring time my kids get a little more grumpier. They have a hard time listening, following directions and getting along with each other. I tried to look for a new way to discipline my kids, but, I was sick and tired of all of the consequence reward ideas that I found. So I asked myself, what is the biggest goal I have for my kids when they grow up. That was easy, I want them to follow God and be a light in the world. I decided to create a creative behavior chart that would allow me to not only focus on an area that I wanted to change,  but also an area that I could praise and reward them on.

Godly Character Charts

So I started with the behavior chart. I made four charts. There are rocket ships for boys and butterflies for girls. Then I made a chart for children that are younger than 5 years old and a chart for kids that are 5 years and older. To use these charts you list one behavior that they display that is unwanted. For example, maybe they forget to pick up after themselves. So on the top line, below the butterfly, you would list, didn’t pick up. Then on the bottom line, you would list the opposite Godly Character Trait of tidiness. This allows you to have them make an x in the first star, on the top set of stars, every time that they forget to pick up something. The bottom set of stars, lets them put an x for each time that they remember to pick up after themselves. Next, you need to list three consequences in the top section. The consequence can stay the same, or you can make the consequences get bigger. Then, when your child puts an x over the star with the number 1, they receive the consequence listed on line one. This leaves the guessing for what consequence they will receive out of the equation. No longer do you have to decide what the consequence will be in the heat of the moment. Now, take time to list rewards on the bottom line. You could have the kids help you with this area, that way they feel invested in the behavior chart. Remind them that the rewards should start out small and then get bigger. You could give them a few suggestions for each line and have them pick the ones that they like. Finally, you are all set to use the chart. Use this chart anyway that suites your family’s needs.

List of Character Traits

Then I decided to come up with a list of Godly character traits. I know that as a parent knowing the end goal, helps me to figure out what steps to take to get there. I took the list and decided which trait is the most important to me right now and circled it. Then I tried to work on those Godly traits first. Once my child had mastered that character trait then I moved on to try to have them master the next trait. The list is pretty long and I do not want any parent to feel overwhelmed when they look at the list. Focus on one area at a time and this will help not only you but also your kids in knowing what exactly is expected from them.

List of Poor Behaviors

After that I made a list of undesirable behaviors. This lists helped me to verbalize the behavior that my child is doing that bothers me the most. It is so easy to look at our kids and say, “Why can’t they stop doing this, and this, and this, and this…” The list can go keep filling up with our negative view of our kid(s). That is why I suggest only focusing on one area first.

List of Poor Behaviors

List of Consequences

That is why I made the Godly Character Chart the way that I did. This chart allows you to focus on only one negative behavior and one Godly character trait at a time. On top of all of these worksheets, I created a creative consequence one as well. This worksheets helps us as parents to give our kids consequences that are relevant to the behavior. To me, this is the area in disciplining our children that matters the most. If we do not give our kids the correct consequence for their inappropriate behavior, then they do not learn from their mistake.

List of Creative Consequences

List of Rewards by Age 

Finally on top of giving an appropriate consequence for their behavior, we also need to give praise to our kids. We need to lift them up in a world that does enough tearing them down. I created a list of rewards that will allow you to have fun and enjoy time with your kids, all the while teaching them to behave in a way that allows you to have a peaceful and enjoyable home.

Fun Weekly Summer School Ideas

Weekly Ideas That Will Spark Interest in A New Topic

Fun Weekly summer school ideas

Starting June first of 2016, we will be having a weekly summer school idea extravaganza. If you are not part of our Facebook group, you will want to join us as soon as possible. During each week there will be a weekly challenge for you and your family to complete. Then each family can post pictures of how they completed the challenge, use words to describe their adventures or even post videos of all the fun things that you have learned during the week or a video explaining how to do the challenge the way that you did.

I know that this will be a fun way to keep all of our families learning and sharing ideas with one another. I know that if you are like me, it is so easy to just forget all about school in the summer and just have fun. But, what if we could learn and have fun all at the same time?? Wouldn’t that be the BEST SUMMER EVER!!

Well here is our line-up of fun challenges to complete each week this summer:

  • Please feel free to complete the tasks that suite your family’s needs.

June:

6/5 – 6/11: Butterflies – Let’s save the Monarch Butterflies. The  Monarch Butterfly population has declined by more than 90% in the past                                                     few years. Go to the Butterfly Heroes website, to receive your free butterfly garden starter kit. Here are some cool                                                     butterfly activities: http://www.activityvillage.co.uk/butterflies. Please take pictures of your family planting their                                                     butterfly garden together and post them on our Homeschool Women of God Facebook group.

6/12 – 6/18:  Plants – This week go for a nature walk and take as many pictures of different plants as you can. Then you can post your photos                                            onto the Homeschooling Women of God  Facebook page asking people to help you to identify each plant. Or, you can                                                label each picture with the name of the plant, so that everyone can learn the name of the plants as well.

6/19 – 6/25:  Clouds – This week take time to relax in the grass and gaze at the clouds. Remember to take pictures of your favorite clouds.                                                   Then upload your photos onto the Facebook page. Label each picture what object you think that it looks like and also                                               the name of the cloud, if you know it. Here is a video to help you and your child(ren) learn about the different types of                                             clouds: http://www.teachertube.com/video/cloud-types-137031. If you do not know what type of cloud it is, ask other                                             people to help you label them from the Facebook group. If you have pictures of your butterfly garden coming up,                                                       please take pictures and share them with us.

6/26 – 7/2: Airplanes – Using whatever materials you have lying around your house to make an airplane. Let each child explore what works                                                best to make their airplane fly farther. Don’t forget to have a lot of tape on hand. Allow them to measure how far                                                        their airplane has flown each time. For older kids you could have them graph the distance of their airplane during                                                    each flight attempt. You could also have them use a stop watch to see how long the airplane stayed in the air. If you                                                  need more help with airplane ideas checkout this website: http://www.scholastic.com/browse/lessonplan.jsp?                                                          id=1508. Please take pictures and share your experience with us on our Facebook group.

7/3 – 7/9: Rocks – As you are out on walks this week have your child be on the look out for rocks that look different, or let them collect                                                 whatever rocks that they like. Then take a picture of the rocks and post them on our Facebook group. You can label each                                         picture with what type of rock it is or you can ask others in our group to help you figure out what kind of rock it is.
