Task Lists for Work Habit Training

Posted on April 11, 2006. Filed under: Attention/ADD/ADHD |

One of the best ways to increase accountability and work production is to make a list of assignments or tasks for the day. The following are some way to vary list-making to keep it novel and fun:

* One homeschooling mom makes a list of 6-10 assignments/tasks on a piece of notebook paper each day for her children. As they complete each task, the item is circled. The mom keeps all assignment sheets for record keeping.

* Put assignments/chores/subject headings on small pieces of paper (2″x3″ works fine or discarded business cards are good). Have the child set the order by placing the cards in a row on a table or cabinet. As each task is completed, the cards can be thrown away or put into a box for another day.

* Those same type of assignment cards can be placed in a jar, ice cream bucket, or box. Shake it up and have the child draw out a task card. Whatever comes out is what gets done next. The mystery helps build enthusiasm and makes doing assignments more exciting.

* Purchase or design a student planner or day timer for upper elementary through high school students. Have them write their assignments in the notebook, along with extracurricular activities and appointments. These also help students plan ahead for long-term projects.
