I use these strips in a small pocket chart to help my students (and myself) keep track of our daily schedule. Inevitably, if I lose track of time there’s always that
uber-helpful student who pays attention to our scheduling pocket chart, notices my error, and points it out.
In our school, we have a rotating A-B-C-D-E schedule. Our schedule changes with each letter day. At times, it can be difficult to keep track of where we’re supposed to be, and when. I find this pocket chart method is quick and easy to change each day. Included in the strips are the typical daily items such as Math, ELA, and Lunch, special area classes such as PE and Music, as well as those activities that don’t occur as often, like Counselor Lesson, Party, and Picture Day.
Each strip has a rebus picture to help lower level readers, the activity name, a place to add the time in digital format, and a blank analog clock face. After printing the strips, I simply draw the hands on the clock, write the digital time, and they’re ready to go for the year!
Each strip can be cut to a height as small as 2 inches or as large as 2.8 inches to suit your needs.
