How to Make a DIY Schedule Board for your Classroom


Staying organized is a must in the classroom.  I like to be able to see what is happening for the week at a glance.  Sometimes my plans are buried under all the "stuff" that accumulates on my desk (OK, most of the time, if I am being honest) and I have to dig around to check my schedule for upcoming items.  This DIY schedule solves the problem of my messy desk!   


What you will need: 

~Dollar Store frame
~Scrapbook papers
~Letter stickers or vinyl and a Silhouette cutting machine


I found this picture frame at my local Dollar Store for $3.00.  I wanted the inserts to match the colours in my room so I headed to Michaels to find matching scrapbook paper.  My final step was to cut out the vinyl letters for each of the days of the week using my Silhouette Cameo.  For under $5.00 I created a functional and attractive schedule board.  

Now each week I use a dry erase marker to jot down important events.  I also have a code for my duties.  That is what the R and L indicates.  We are on a rotating day system as well, so I can glance at my schedule to remind myself what "day" it is.  

Pin this picture to help you remember and consider making yourself one over the summer!  Check out some other great teacher tips over at Mrs. Beattie's Classroom.  I am linking up with her this week and sharing this little project.
