It’s a sad day at our house. We are running out of book space, I am slowly aquiring more chapter books and quickly running out of room for the more baby books, so today I took the plunge. The board books are headed to the garage. I was sad as I packed them up, they’re all so sweet… and I don’t want them to feel bad. Of course, Sandra Boynton and a few treasured ones are staying…
And that brings me to the anal part. I have now organized our books according to picture books, informational, easy reader and chapter books. I’m going to type up labels as soon asn I’m done here and then I think all I can do is pray. I left a little sorting area where Spencer can put books that he’s done with (since he doesn’t really have a clue as to if something’s informational, etc… but I’m hoping Conner can police the area appropriately.
Which, brings me to my last question. What kind of jobs do you have your kids do around the house? So far Conner vacuums his room, puts away his clean clothes, uses our little electronic sweeper in the kitchen, cleans the bathroom counter and sorts his laundry. Spencer also sorts laundry, he cleans behind the toilet, gets the towels and the rugs on the days I wash them, but I’m looking to add a few more responsibilities for each of them during the school year.
What do you guys do?
