Targeted Skills Parents can make a list of chores for their children to complete over the week. You can add a list of tasks for each day and ‘tick’ them off once completed. Students earn ‘stars’ for completing tasks.
Great For
  • If you are teaching children to complete chores or tasks at home and want to represent this in a visual, interactive chart.
  • If you have several children, the app can switch between ‘users’ so each child can have a personalised chart.
  • You can import a photo of the child and personalise the list of chores to add to the chart. You can display as many daily chores as required.
  • You can allocate a certain ‘star’ allowance for completing a task and once children earn enough stars they can ‘payout’ for the reward.
  • Chores can be selected according to which days they occur (e.g. taking the rubbish out), repeating weekly etc, assign a point value to each chore and add a picture to the chore.
Please Consider
  • The app displays quite a lot of visual information so it would be most appropriate for children who are able to comprehend this visual display. The display can only be presented as a weekly calendar.
  • The app allows you to tick off the task immediately when completed however does not provide immediate tangible feedback. Children earn ‘stars’ to gain a delayed reward. This may not provide enough motivation for some children.
  • The app can be a little complicated to set up and follow, so allow yourself some time to explore and use must be supervised by an adult.
Generalise Skills and Knowledge
  • Try using the app in an interactive manner with your children by discussing the chores you would like them to complete and how many stars may be earned for each task.
  • It is important to ensure that the rewards determined for the ‘star allowance’ are motivating for the child. This could be discussed and determined with them to assist with their motivation to complete the task.
  • Children may need modelling to help them understand and know how to complete tasks e.g., the first time they complete a task such as ‘making the bed’, you may do it together or just ask them to do one small part before ticking it off the chart.
