Mom Spotlight: Schedule Your Day {printable}

Bernadette and I have been friends since BK (Before Kids).  She’s an awesome teacher and mom of three children.  I love how she has incorporated some of her teaching techniques into her home.  We’ve talked about sharing this f.o.r.e.v.e.r. and guess what – it’s here!  Link to printable at the bottom.

She has this great schedule that she uses to let her kids know what the plans are for the day.  

First, she keeps the main cards to suggest a framework for the day:

Second, she works with her child to set the schedule for the rest of the day.

Morning Activities on left – Afternoon Activities on right                  

They read it together and read it again!

Throughout the day they visit the chart and figure out what’s next on the schedule.  She said it’s been a lifesaver!

For more reasons on why you should schedule your day go here.

1.  Put magnets on the back for the fridge.
2.  Put the cards in a pocket chart.  Pocket charts (similar to the one above – maybe a little smaller) are sometimes available in the dollar section at Target in the summer / fall.

Guess what?  She’s provided all of the cards for you to print out!!  Cardstock works best.  To print your own set click {here}

Thank you so much Bernadette!

    Thanks for the great idea. My children are much younger than 2nd graders and aren’t reading yet so I printed out clipart pictures to show them their “schedule.” :-)

  5. That’s just great! Having some sort of schedule will help you a lot. Whether it’s pictures or words, whatever works for your family is best!
