I have taught in a self-contained special education elementary classroom for nine years.
Especially for our Autistic learners, it is best if they know what to expect. For this reason, visual schedules provide the support that is needed.
I have tried different schedules, and have found that being consistent is the only way for our students to be successful in following a schedule.
I call the icons for the station markers "tickets". I use the tickets on my student's daily visual schedule. Each student knows where they are suppose to be. Expectations are also on each station marker.
Station markers include: Art, Specials, Class with Friends, Quiet Station, Snack, Teaching, Morning Meeting, Numbers, ABC, Building Station, Eagle Stations 1 & 2, Cubby Stations 1 & 2, Lunch, Playground, Kitchen Station, Pocket Chart Station, Restroom, Brushing Teeth, Writing, Puzzle Station, Reading Station, Listening Station, Exploration, Computer Stations 1 & 2, and Playdough Station.
In this packet, Station Markers are provided for different stations or centers that you may have in your classroom.
I have included Eagle Stations and Cubby Stations in case you want to have individual work stations in your classroom. I have also included twenty work job box labels with icons. I have found that if you tape the extra icon inside the work box, then if the first icon is lost, you have a replacement without having to print again.
I hope that this is helpful! If you need any other station or something edited, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
