My son is in kindergarten this year and although we try to encourage him to be independent, this is something I work on daily:-)
How are some ways you encourage independence?
With Clay (five years old): *sets the table *clears the table *puts her clothes away *cleans his own room *rides his bike to and from school without training wheels *picks out his clothes and dresses himself (still needs help with buttons) *picks out books from the library weekly *helps feed the dog
With Courtney (four years old): *sets her place at the table *helps with the dishes *puts her clothes away *picks out her own clothes and dresses herself (with some assistance...does a little better on buttons) *picks out books from the library weekly *helps feed the cats
