Housework and homeschooling.  Those two words don’t always go well together.  While my family does employ a chore chart that has served us well for many years, there are those weeks when we’re so busy all we have time to do is “dump and run.”

After those weeks, my house can look like it’s been hit by a tornado, stressing my clutter-free-loving soul.  It’s those times that I may institute a life skills day.  I’ve found that some pretty valuable lessons can be learned during a life skills day.

Want to know what those lessons are?  Read my full post today at Simple Homeschool.

  1. I agree, the chore charts don't always work. Things come up or may not need to be done on a certain day. I'm toying with a card method. Write the chores out on cards and hand them to each person adn they can get handed back to me when they finish each one. This way I can customize our chores to each day.
    Have a good week!

  2. Michelle,

    That's exactly how our chore chart system is set up. Check out the link if you need ideas!
