If you home school your children, most likely there are materials and tools in your home that are found in classrooms. One item in particular is a chalkboard, which every teacher finds useful.
Today, the chalkboard has been modernized with other styles including a glass marker board. Fortunately, there are other uses for this in your home that keeps your household as organized as your children’s school day.
Family dynamics require lots of communication and organization. The design of this type of board adds striking style to wherever you decide to hang it. Here are a few uses to consider when the board is not being used for school lessons.
How often in one day do you hear the same question: What is for dinner? If you know in advance and are tired of answering, you can use the board to write out the dinner menu. Perhaps you could also leave a note on the board asking someone to pickup an item from the grocery store.
List for Groceries
Speaking of groceries, if you install one of these boards near the kitchen, it can become a convenient place to make a grocery list. How many times are you in the kitchen and realize either something is gone or you are about to run out of a certain item? By the time you are able to write out your grocery list, you may forget to add that particular item.
Having the board near the kitchen is one helpful way to make sure you remember when it is time to go grocery shopping. You can make this a team effort. Whenever someone in the family notices something is running low, they can add it to the list, too.
List of Chores
Another way to keep the family involved is to use the board to list everyone’s chores. Until there is a world where you no longer have to ask others to help around the house, make good use of this board. This way, you are not constantly reminding your children and spouse of what they need to do to contribute.
Make sure the board is in a high traffic area like the kitchen or hallway so everyone is reminded every time they walk by. Get the kids more involved by having them write a check mark once their share of the workload is done.
This brief list should get you started in making full use of the board. As a functional and safe product, everyone can be motivated to do more around the house.
