10 Ideas for Visual Schedules

Happy Labor day weekend, teacher friends! I've been busy "researching" visual schedule ideas on the great encyclopedia of everything, Pinterest! I am trying to figure out a new system that will work for my students this year. I thought I would share my favorites with you, in case you are in the same boat that I am in!

1. I love how this schedule uses the stoplight colors to indicate what's currently happening and what's next!

Brie, from Breezy Special Ed, uses folders to set up her indiviudal student schedules. This would be easy to incorporate color coding without having to have colored images!

2. I'm a huge fan of the "First, Then" schedule. And the binder storage for extra images would really help keep everything organized.

3. I love, love, love how the pill box holds a reinforcer. THis would be perfect for kiddos who need immediate reinforcement after completing a task.

4. This takes the idea of "First, Then" to the next level and it's perfect for when you're on the go.

5. Keep track of what visuals belong to who by printing on colored paper!

6. Students close the flap when the task is done. This is great for students that don't have the motor skills to place the icon in a "finished" pocket or container.

7. This $13 app looks amazing! Drag and drop when the task is finished.

8. What a great idea to use an index card holder to place the icons in when finished.

9. This schedule would be great for students who are working on telling time!

10. Clipboards + schedules = <3 br="">

How do you decide what type of visual schedule to use in your classroom? I'd love to hear your tips & tricks!
