What educators are saying

I love the bright colors and my students are eager to check their visual schedule! I wish I had found this one before purchasing a different one.
My students use token boards throughout the day. This resource has been easy to use and includes a large variety of tasks/events! Thank you


Creating a visual schedule that can easily be manipulated and changed out for your students on a daily basis is made simple with this resource!

The newly updated visual schedule for the special education classroom has everything you need to keep your students informed on their schedule, as well as schedule changes, what's coming next, work centers and structured work times, and everything in between!

What does the •OLD• visual schedule include?

• 48 color and 48 black/white schedule cards

• Horizontal schedule cards

• Blank analog and digital clock cards

• Whole group class schedule cards (6" cards)

• A "How To" file (to give you ideas on how to use this and make it unique to your specific classroom)

How do I use this in my classroom:

  1. Use the schedule cards on your whiteboard or chalkboard to keep a whole group visual schedule at the front of the room.
  2. Each student has his/her own individual schedule Velcro-ed to his/her desk. I put Velcro on each schedule piece.
  3. Because daily schedules change due to specials and special needs services, each of my students has a picture of each day's schedule in a binder with the extra 1.6" pieces. In the morning, the student takes out the coordinating picture and sets up his/her Velcro strip for the day.
  4. As we work throughout the day, students know what is coming next and I can keep track of what each student has accomplished. When a student finishes an activity, s/he simply peels it off the Velcro and puts in back into his/her binder.
  5. Use the blank analog and digital clock cards on your front board (laminate to use a dry erase marker) for students to visualize what the clock will look like when it is time to transition.

This visual schedule is similar to what you would see with Boardmaker or PECS. I wanted something more personal and fun for our classroom schedule. :)


At this time I am not adding additional schedule cards or colors to the color coded aspects of this visual schedule.
