The biggest problem with visual schedules (especially those velcro ones) are all the pieces! I need things organized in my life so I can be efficient as a teacher. I go nuts if I'm not organized. I imagine it's similar to how my students would feel without a schedule!
So here are a couple hacks I'm currently using in my classroom.
I store icons that don't exactly fit on the schedule strip in little baggies I have stapled to the wall. They are organized in order so we just have to pull them out as the student's day progresses. They can continue to see what is coming, and we stay organized! Yay!
Ok, now organizing all those pieces can be a disaster! I have a few different hacks I use for this. I have separated out the icons that are used on a daily basis and I have adhered velcro to the inside of a cabinet near my schedules. This allows me to quickly pull icons when I am rescheduling the next day.
