We revamped our chore system in December and I thought I'd share what is working here.
This will be our second run of a group of chores using the Maxwell's chore packs, and I must say that after about six months of using the cards, we are happy with the success rate. *Some* children forget certain chores even though they are written on the cards and attached to their bodies. Huh. Kinda like the child who misspells words and omits whole passages while doing copywork. But I digress.
I had to make a master spreadsheet for all the chores assigned to all the kids so that I could clearly see division of labor and so that I can remember what each child is responsible for. Then I printed out a copy and put it on my clipboard so that I have access to it all day long.
