An important aspect of the special needs classroom is the visual schedule. In my classroom, all of my students have their own "center schedules" which help them to navigate the day.
Each schedule is on a laminated file folder with a vertical velcro strip for the morning on the front and an identical strip for the morning on the back. Currently, all of the student schedules are attached with heavy duty magnets all around my desk. However, since they are on file folders they could be portable for those kiddos that need to take their schedule with them to inclusion. The center cards are 1in x 1in picture symbols that match various centers around the classroom (computer, literacy center, sensory table, independent work) and sometimes other locations within the school building (specials, OT, lunch)
