How to use the routine cards:
The cards serve as picture reminders and vote of confidence as your child takes responsibility for his/her after school routine. When one task is done, the child can check it off by turning the card around, the back side says “Well done”.
Prepare: In the evening, using the cards’ visual cues, discuss with your child your expectations for them when they arrive home from school.
Remind: While reviewing the morning routine, also take this opportunity to review the after school routine as well.
Engage: Be sure to use lots of encouragement as your child tackles and completes each task! Your child will be excited to show you each completed task – share in their joy and pride as they master these new skills!
Visual cues can be reassuring and helpful even for older kids. Many school-aged children spend some afternoon time on their own, and Vymbol’s visual after school routine cards will remind them of their responsibilities while breaking down the afternoon into individual tasks that are easy to complete.
