This is a basic schedule that can be used in a classroom or your kitchen, thus referencing specific time transitions. If you are confident in the time frame of the transitions, and are teaching the child to self-reference the clock… this will be great. Also consider the reading level of your child. If they struggle to read, consider adding illustrations along with the words
If your child is an avid reader, but is more successful with specific identified transitions throughout the day… this written schedule would work well. If you could does not need the specific time constraints, consider just a list of tasks and activities/transitions!
Beginning schedule will identify the time and ‘first/then’ illustration. First you will complete the ‘green’, then the ‘red’, and during the tasks you can ask for help, break, or time alone in the bottom. Great way to teach your child to stay on task, and earn a break as a reward for completion! Also teaches daily structures in broken down steps. …more manageable!
The most basic schedule is ‘first’ and ‘then’. Typically identifies a new skill that is being taught as ‘green’ and a mastered skill (or break) as ‘red’.
For the readers that need simplistic schedules, this is a great choice:
For kids that struggle with illustrations, consider using a real life object to match to the picture and identify the transition.
Kids also benefit from a schedule that can be removed, and matched to the location in which they are transitioning to.
For non-readers, color coded schedules can also be beneficial… along with the illustration.
File folder schedules can travel with the learner!!!!
Here is a great way to organize independent works (at home or school).
