Visual Schedules for Preschool

Visual Schedules for Preschool


Episode Summary

Schedules are an important way of life. They keep us in our daily routines and get us to the places we need to be.

In a preschool classroom, a daily schedule is the backbone to our day.   At the beginning of the school year, I create our classroom schedule (using the 5 step method) and have it hanging up in the room. But, of course the young children in our classroom can't read it! I found that many of my students were asking 'what do we do next?', 'when can we go outside?' and 'when is my mom coming?'. 

So, I knew it was time to create some visual supports for my little non-readers!  Listen in to learn about a great resource to include in your classroom!

Topics Discussed:
