Help your child understand how sleep impacts her ability to focus in school, the way she feels, and performance in sports by creating a sleep chart for one week. Using a large piece of paper or poster board, write the days of the week at the top of the paper (left to right). Then using a marker or stickers note the quality of sleep in the morning each day (categories can include: great, good, okay, not good, bad). Then have your child rate her emotions and energy level after school each day. Place or write the rating just underneath the sleep quality for that day. Complete this for an entire week and then discuss the pattern of sleep quality and emotional well-being and energy level.
