Creating a Visual Schedule #Homeschool

by Lori on August 9, 2013

My 6 year old has some special needs that we are trying to address without the need for medication. This includes seeing a “play” therapist every 2 weeks.

She gave us the idea of a visual schedule for C-man, so he can see what is happening next and he can focus much better.

I searched Pinterest for so many ideas.

It was overwhelming to say the least. There were SO MANY ideas! Visual Schedules that you could order already made and schedules you could print and make yourself. None seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.

I needed something bright, something he could read, and something with the ability to adjust it immediately if needed.

I decided what I needed was some poster board and some magnets.

All I did was make a list of the tasks we needed to make our schedule work. This included: Family Walk, Bible Time, Reading, Math, Lunch, Snacks, Brain Breaks, Free Time, Baseball Practice, and many many more.

I cut the post board into 2 inch strips and then wrote those tasks on each one.

I then took the strips to my local FedEx Office and had them do the laminating for me. I brought them home and cut them out. I then placed magnets on the back so they could be rearranged on the fridge and the schedule changed daily.


This was the perfect solution for the visual schedule I needed for C-man. It was simple and cost less than $15 to make.

LOVE it! I do something similar for my two younger boys! ­čÖé They love the visual (photo/drawing) of the activity (because they cannot yet read).
