Charts, Schedules, and Directions
Charts
Attendance Chart
Ask the children to “sign” in and out each day. Write the children’s names on achart at the front door. Each child is assisted with locating his or her name,then “signing-in” beside their name by making some kind of written mark, suchas a scribble, a letter, or even a picture.
Have the children place their photograph and/or name on the attendance chart.This chart could take any form from a large sheet of paper to a laminatedpicture, such as a tree. Later, the class can “read” the chart to learn who ispresent and who is not. The class can notice how their role-model records theinformation on his or her checklist with a writing utensil.
Picture-Data Chart
Use charts or graphs to record the children’s choices and ideas.
It is useful to place the child’s photograph in the chosen category. Then thechildren can independently review the chart later and rediscover who preferredwhat by “reading” the photographs or pictures in each category.
Use pictures or drawings to depict the various categories on the chart.
Examples of Topics for the Picture-Data Chart
 
Preferences
- Who likes green apples vs red apples? Who likes this book vsthat book?
 
Evaluations
 - Who is wearing gloves vs mittens? Who picked a big book vs asmall book?
 
Choices
- Who will do what classroom job? Or Who will play what activity?Who will read what book?
 
Predictions
– Will it rain or snow today? Will the three bears find Goldilocks?

Schedules
Picture Sequencing Schedules
Picture schedules serve the same purpose as an adult’s day timer…theysequence the events of the day or the steps to completing an activity.
Picture Sequencing Schedules help children learn that they can read pictures tolearn about their day and to follow directions, just like their role-models do.
Making a Picture Sequencing Schedule
Collect Pictures: Draw a simple line drawing; find pictures on the computer or inmagazines; take pictures of classroom routines, common objects and actions;or use samples of the real object (glue a crayon onto the cardboard square toshow that they must color for one of the steps).
Consider laminating frequently used pictures and attaching Velcro to the backof each one. Then you can attach them to a laminated board, such asconstruction paper. Attach Velcro and the pictures horizontally from left to rightto mimic reading a sentence, or vertically from top to bottom to mimic reading alist.
Point to each picture as you “read along” to review the schedule.
When reading, incorporate the some or all of this terminology: First we will…,then we will…, next we will…, last we will…..

Examples of Picture Sequencing Schedules
Daily Routine - Schedule
 
First
we will read a story (point to the picture of a story)
 
Then
we will have a snack (point to the picture that represents snack) and
 
Last
we will go outside (point to the picture that shows outside)
At the end of the day, review the schedule again: “First we did…, then we….,next we…, and last we……” This will also help them to use past tense verbs totalk about their day.Picture Directions – Schedule
Increase children’s independence and use of print by providing visual directionsfor activities.
 
First
, chose an activity for the class or for a centre and break it down into parts,if necessary.
 
Then,
chose/make one to four pictures that depict each step of a task. Forexample, if the children are to make a cloud, they may need to follow thesesteps: First, draw a cloud. Then, glue on cotton balls. Also, have an exampleof what the finished product will look like.
 
Last,
provide your directions using pictures or objects. Your first picturedirection might be a line drawing of a cloud with a crayon glued beside it.Attaching the crayon object shows them the object that they need and whatthey need to do with it (draw a cloud). The second step will be some real cottonballs and an empty bottle of glue or a glue accessory glued beside it (glue onthe cotton balls).
Use the picture directions to increase independence in the classroom. Forexample, beside the door, have a set of pictures that will remind the children tocheck themselves before leaving. For example, post a picture of mittens, hats,and boots.
Demonstrate to the children how to follow these types of picture-directions.Use the words: First, then/next, last. Soon, they will become familiar with whatto do with picture directions when come across them in the classroom. Tryhaving the children make up their own picture directions for special activities.
