How to Create and Use a Picture Schedule in your Art Room

You may have seen your special education teacher use a picture schedule to help students with things like transitions, following directions, and multi-step processes, but I bet you’ve never seen one designed just for the art room! In this video, you will get an inside peek at how I put together and use one of my FAVORITE things I’ve ever created for my art room: An art room picture schedule.

I organize all of the cards for my picture schedule in a nice clear binder, which makes it easy for the associates to find and use in the classroom.
