Regular readers of Planning With Kids will be familiar with this post. Each term I create a timetable for the children to assist them in being responsible for managing their own tasks.
I photocopy the Children’s Timetable onto A3 sized paper and place it on the wall where it is easy for all children to see. This is the reference point for the children each morning as they pack their bags for school/kinder. It helps them to have their right uniform on for the day and the right belongings required.
For the youngest child Babaganouski, I slot in activities across the week. These act as a reminder for me of the types of things that I need to be doing with him at this stage of his life.
As with the last timetable, the font I have used in the table, is called Victorian Modern Cursive. This is the style of handwriting taught in primary schools through out Victoria. This may not show up on correctly your computer (may look like just a very basic font), but you can download it freely from the Victorian Govt Education website. I like to use this font for the preschoolers and younger school age children, as it helps them become familiar with the way the will need to write the alphabet.
