Tally Ho!


For some reason, first graders need to learn how to keep a Tally. Dexter has come home with some worksheets proving that he has learned such a skill. Last night, before Family Home Evening, as we were clearing the dishes, George and I had a quick discussion about what the lesson subject should be. (We usually identify a nasty problem that has been bugging us about the children's behavior - and then pick a way to address that issue in a spiritual and loving way; such was the case last night.) The issue of not listening seemed like the most urgent choice. George came up with the plan of giving the kids a tally mark each time we ask them to do something and they do it the first time! Although this was not 24 hours ago, our lives have changed! Mostly because we have realized how much we ask them to do, or how much we tell them to STOP, or interrupt them in the middle of something. But it has helped them as well. They have tried really hard to listen and not to say, "BUT MOM..." This also entails George and I carrying around a mini-golf like scorecard (and mini-golf like pencil to go with it), but so far it has worked. Now I know why first graders need to know about Tally marks....to help their listening skills. That makes sense.
