This school year, help your kids master their before school tasks with a printable morning routine chart and checklist.

Printable School Morning Checklist

This printable school morning checklist was inspired by the new book We Don’t Eat Our Classmates by Ryan T. Higgins.

This super cute story follows Penelope Rex on her first day of school. She can’t wait to meet her classmates, but it’s hard to make human friends when they’re so darn delicious! That is until Penelope gets a taste of her own medicine and finds she may not be at the top of the food chain after all . . .

The lesson in this colorfully illustrated picture book is one that every kid should hear. And it’s told on a backdrop that all kids can relate to – how it feels to start at a new school and try to make new friends.

And in the midst of that struggle, kids also have a ton of brand new responsibilities to handle. That’s where our printable kids morning checklist comes in.

Just wipe off the marks at the end of the day and your child is ready for a new adventure the next morning.

My six-year-old son loved how Penelope acted just like a dinosaur would in a room full of children — she ate them all! And I loved that she realized the consequences of her actions and eventually came to understand how her actions affected her classmates. I think that’s a lesson every school-aged child should hear.

We Don’t Eat Our Classmates is a fun story with a great message that will be read over and over again in our house. Similarly, I know our morning routine chart is going to get lots of use in the coming weeks.

What part of your child’s morning routine is easy for her to accomplish and which tasks are more of a struggle? Please share in the comments below.
