A List You’ll Never Forget
From an InsideADHD.org subscriber
Weekday mornings can be chaotic for our 5th grader. We found that having a structured morning routine is the best way for her to get ready for school on time. One day, we sat down with our daughter and came up with a creative way for her to remember her morning routine. Using the first letter of each of the steps of her morning routine, our daughter came up with a silly sentence that she can recite each morning, as a mini-checklist.
For example, using the first letter of each of the things she needs to remember to do,
our daughter made up the sentence:
Six bumbling badgers leave enormous mountains of buttons.
Reciting it each morning reminds her to stick to the routine. It’s silly, but she’ll never forget it!
