What is it?
A visual schedule can help children who are not able to read normal schedules and need guidance during transition times.
How to begin?
1.Introduce the schedule to the children; help them understand what the pictures mean
2.Turn their attention to the clock schedule during transitions, and turn the hand into the next time period and explain what will be the next thing the children will be doing is. Ex. “It’s time for snack!” and turn the hand to the picture of a snack.
Why is it useful?
This is useful, because the children learn the schedule, whether or not they can read or remember the transitions. It provides a steady and constant helpful guide for children who feel insecure during transition times; the schedule can be changed to resemble the schedule that your class follows. The time hand introduces children from an early age to clocks and how they may work.
