My sons' preschool teachers used schedules with cute cartoon pictures that were attached to velcro boards. When I taught high school I posted a schedule because I think students respond much better with a visual cue.
Using Publisher, I inserted pictures of my kids going about our after-school routine. I used pictures so my two youngest kids, who don't read, could participate too.
I laminated them so the kids could check it off as they go. We hang the clipboards on a hook by our garage door so the kids can grab them when we get back from school pick-up.
Got so excited, that I made four of these routine schedules! Click below for the other three schedules:
