This free printable reward chart for kids is a weekly one. It is kept blank so you can fill in your own tasks. Each day of the week and a total tally make up the rows. At the bottom of the chart are blank spaces for you to write-in your child's goals.
To Reward Or Not To Reward?
It depends on the child. Some children are more motivated by rewards then others. Using a reward chart helps kids think about goals and aiming to achieve their targets. It is a good lesson in life. However, it should not be overused as you may find that it loses its meaning when your child starts hankering for rewards and start equating chores and homework etc with it.
Having said that though, I think reward charts are a good thing for short term goals. It is also useful for teaching children the importance of household chores and helping around the house. Rewards need not be monetary. A hug, story time, an hour at the park can all be rewards too.
