I don't know about your kids but mine do better if I provide them with a daily task list. I decided I wanted to do something more interactive and fun than a piece of paper. With the side of our fridge, a can of chalkboard paint, and some magnetic letters ($15 total) I was able to do this. Starting Monday (we have to wait 3 days before we can write on it) each morning I will write their assignments on the fridge and they can erase them as they are accomplished. Hopefully this works as well as I think it will!
