A behavior chart can be a blessing to parents in any household. Whether you homeschool or not, every parent needs a way to keep track of their child’s behavior.  Whether you want to reward your children for good behavior or teach them to monitor their own actions, a behavior chart is a great place to start.

My kids and husband like to play chess together.  So when I thought about developing a behavior board that would resonate with them and be easy to understand, chess was at the top of my list.  Our chess behavior chart runs the same way a game of chess does. Each chess piece is worth a certain number of points and they must gain that amount to move up the chart.  At the beginning of the day the boys get one point for doing their daily reading and writing assignment.  That moves them up to pawn.  And so on and so forth.  Thus far this point system has worked.
