Students thrive on structure and routine and behavior issues decrease when children know what to expect. Are you looking for a way to do this? Schedule cards are the answer! They make it quick and easy for you to create a visual display outlining your day.

This schedule cards display is made up of editable and diverse cards that empower you to choose a schedule that works for your class.

“What’s next?” “When’s lunch” Do you hear this chirping throughout the school day? Communicate the answers nonverbally using schedule cards.

  • Having a visual schedule for children to reference will allow them to predict what will happen next which enables them to feel prepared and secure. 
  • Children are more likely to be engaged, attentive and able to learn when they know what to expect.
  • A classroom schedule establishes routine and structure for your students.
  • It provides students extra practice with telling time.
  • It gives an example of real world application of math.

  • A posted schedule will help you manage time and keep the day progressing as planned.
  • It offers your students opportunities to practice time and elapsed time.
  • It provides you and your students the big picture for the day.

  • It is easy to prepare at the beginning of the year.
  • It will decrease interruptions and behaviors during instructional time because students know what to expect. 
  • It will keep your students engaged during learning experiences.

Print the schedule cards on cardstock and laminate them. 

  1. One option is to use a pocket chart. It makes it very easy to switch the activities around. Hang it a bit lower than normal so that your students can be in charge of changing it up each afternoon. You can leave a bit of space to the left of each schedule card to place small colored cards that can be flipped over as we complete an activity. 
  2. A second option is great if you have a whiteboard that is magnetic. Peel and stick magnets like these on the back of each card. This makes it so easy to move around the cards on the whiteboard.

I needed to create a visual schedule last minute and couldn't find any that had everything I needed. Most didn't have Spanish which is one of our Specials so the ability to create that with the editable template was a bonus. Everything else I needed was right there. Thanks!

I scoured TPT and every resource website for the perfect schedule cards and now I've finally found them! I wanted something where the time was not included on the actual card. The editable cards are perfect for added flexibility.
