Visual Schedule for Preschoolers and Toddlers (Free Printable)

VisualSchedule

I wrote a while back about the schedule I created for our family. While it’s been tweaked a bit as we have tested it out, it’s proven useful for getting the important things done as long as I practice using it.

 

I’ve also created a visual schedule for the kids so that they know what to expect during the day. I used a pocket chart from Target and printed out activity cards and time cards (free printable). I can rearrange things as needed, but they stay basically in the order shown above.

On Wednesdays, we go to BSF right after Acts of Service. So I replace all those cards with one Bible School card. On Fridays, we normally go to Co-op after snack time.

Visual Schedule for Preschoolers and Toddlers

I found the activity card ideas and images from the Classroom Center Signs section of The Daycare Resource Connection. I took the clock images from a place like Homeschool Math and just drew in the hands where I wanted them.

The times aren’t meant to be too rigid. We generally follow the schedule. The kids enjoy knowing what’s next, and boy do they call me on it if I miss something! 🙂 The times are more for my own reference. All in all, it’s proven a helpful tool at in our home!

Here are a few more resources for ideas:

  1. Hi Tauna! I love your idea of a schedule. I think that since I’ve had so much trouble with my 3 year old and I think a visual schedule is a great solution for both of us. Thanks for the printables too!

  2. Tauna I am so excited to find your blog. I am a 23 year old wife of almost 5 years amd have a 9 month old darling daughter. We also attend BSF its my first year and I just love it!

  3. Hello, I am a preschool teacher and am making a visual schedule for my room. I can’t find the mini clocks anywhere to add to it..can you help me find them??? thanks

    1. Sure! Google “telling time blank clocks” and see what you find. I can’t remember where exactly I got the clocks I used, but it was something like the worksheet with multiple blank clocks found here. http://www.math-aids.com/Time/

  4. I love your schedule, what a great idea to have it visible for the kids to see. I am going to see what I can come up with as I have no where to get a pocket chart around here. I love the look of that though.
    Thanks for sharing with Throwback Thursday Blog-Style. I can’t wait to see what you share this week.
