Works for Me Wednesday- Visual Schedule

wfmw

 Being a teacher, I am all about routine. Of course, my 2 ½ year old usually has other ideas. Bedtime seems to be especially hard for us. Since we work all day we tend to be more relaxed in the evenings and can lose our consistency. To help us stay on track I made this visual work board for Mark.

First I printed off icons for the activities that make up our routine. (You can use any clip art or photos, I used the simple ones from a program I have on my computer)

Next, I had Mark color them. I then glued them to a long piece of construction paper, laminated it and then hung it on the wall. Mark takes great pride in telling me what we need to do next. This has helped us stay organized and maintain the consistency a 2 ½ year old thrives on.  Visual bedtime schedules work for me!

  1. That is such a fabulous idea! I did the pictures on the containers and pictures on the drawers so my kids would know where to put things in their room, but never thought of a visual planner.

  2. It works wonders for us. I would be lost without it 🙂
