Having a kindergarten schedule allows you to follow a plan easier and make sure you are teaching what students need to learn. It is also a way to help children feel safe and secure because they know what will come up next. A sense of safety and security is very important for students and it is our job to provide that. One way to do this is by having a visual schedule. I keep my time blocks broad so that I can adjust times as necessary during the day but we are generally working in the area that is indicated on the visual schedule. I also add times separately just in case I need to adjust them to fit the needs of students as the year progresses. This is what our schedule looks like.
