How to Create a Homeschool Schedule Your Kindergarteners’ Will Love

Kids love to play over the course of the day, so when school starts, it’s important to establish a fun yet beneficial structure to their social and emotional learning.

Perfect for any grade level, learn how to make a DIY homeschool daily schedule with VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Dots. And if your child isn’t homeschooled, this is a great way to manage their homework and chores. Help them stay focused and provide a little play to their busy day!

Why Are Routines Important for Children?

A family schedule, a dedicated spot in the home and a routine give kids a predictable day that instills a sense of control, allows them to feel safe and secure, and, most importantly, keeps them engaged with their learning.

In fact, a study by the University of Albany found that individuals who grow up with daily routines are less likely to have time management problems as adults.

Routines are the foundation for homeschooling and a schedule is a great way to start!

How To Make a Daily Kindergarten Homeschool Schedule

Materials You’ll Need:
·       VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Dots
·       One sheet of construction paper
·       Scissors
·       Paper cut-outs that represent each task

  1. Decide on the Schedule

    Write down on a separate sheet of paper a schedule that makes sense for your kid’s daily activities. If the morning is a great time to craft, add that as the first task. Don’t forget to include lunch and any other breaks!

  2. Design Your Schedule

    Take your construction paper and fold it lengthwise down the middle
    Then measure and cut equal slits halfway down the page. This will be the bottom half of the page. Make sure to cut enough sections for each daily task.

  3. Glue Your Pictures

    Once you’ve made the flaps, take the pictures you’ve printed out of each task and glue them to the top half of the page.

  4. Write or Print Your Tasks

    Write each task directly below each picture. Then on the back of each flap, add a check mark.

  5. Apply the Closures

    Finally, apply the VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back Dots to the top and bottom of your construction paper.Kindergarten Homeschool Schedule coins
