Daily Schedule Cards

NEW & updated schedule cards have been uploaded to my TpT shop.  You can find them HERE!!!!



  1. You are amazing! Thank you so much!

  2. You are so darn sweet friend! XOXO! Michelle Oakes

  3. You are so sweet to share! I will begin using these next Monday.

  4. SERIOUSLY............Thank you so very much!! I know that some of those are my requests and I am so grateful to you. They will be put to use in my classroom next week!

    Amazing as usual...

  5. I am envious of your daily schedule, it looks ideal for teaching math, reading, and writing to firsties. I am curious, do you have a reading basal type curriculum you have to teach or are you free to teach literacy as you see fit? We have to do one at my school and it takes up a whole block of my schedule. Even after trimming it down to the bare minimum it still takes up enough time that I'd otherwise like to spend on Writers Workshop or Math Stations.

  6. you are a doll, thank you SO SO much!

  7. You are sooo wonderful! Thank you for sharing all of your fabulous ideas!!

  8. Wow, Cara~ you are always so kind to accommodate and share! These are adorable. Thank you!

    Primary Practice

  9. These are awesome! I really need a big visual of my schedule in my room and these are perfect. Could you make a rest time or nap time one?

  21. These are AWESOME! I hate to ask for any more, but if you could make one that says "Oral Language" and one that says "Morning Work" I would truly appreciate it. If not, no worries...I'm an expert improviser.


  22. Thank you for these! You're amazing! One request if you have time: Math Stretch.

  32. Hey what about one for "Power Hour"? That's what we call our RTI.

  33. Thanks so much for sharing. These are so helpful! I am out in CA so some of the stuff I need is probably different that what you do. Would you be able to do one that says U.A. Time, ELD, and Math Facts. Thanks so much.

    I completely understand if you can't. It seems the more you give to teacher....the more she asks for stuff.

  34. Cara -
    I'm convinced you don't sleep - you're a vampire...how do you DO it all?!?!?!?!

    Since you asked, if you feel like adding more:

    *Afternoon meeting
    *Read aloud (was that there?)
    *Partner reading
    *Number Corner
    *Word Study
    *Star Student

    (and if you just want to roll your eyes at me and ignore this post - I completely understand)

    Hugs and THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. Thank you!! You are the best! These are adorable and my kids love them!! Thanks for your hard work! Could you make a phonemic awareness card and an RTI or intervention card, Restroom break,and vocabulary. I would apprciate it soo very much. You made my day today!

  36. Leaping Lizards!! What a jewel!

    I am in the process of making new ones and was going to use board maker to illustrate but this are WAY cuter and D.O.N.E. which is the most important thing ...right!

    Thank you so much for sharing the file! A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!

    Sarah Hetrick

  37. Thanks so much for sharing!! These are just what I needed today. You are a true inspiration! If you happen to put more together I would love:
    Choice Time and/or Free Time
    Movement (it's like music only in the gym... I'll be the only person asking for that I'm sure)

    Thanks you again!!

  38. Thank you so much for sharing! That is so sweet of you! I am wondering if you can add Motor Lab. It's a time that our OT & PT have set up for our K sweeties to work on Large Motor Activities.

  39. I appreciate your hard work. Thank you for sharing!

  40. These are wonderful; thank you!

    Would you please consider adding one for Mass?

  41. WOW!! Thank you so much for sharing these, I have been needing something like this.

  42. I love these and can't wait to use them on my schedule board, but I need a couple of others if possible:
    -Guided Reading
    -Math Groups

    Thanks a million!

  43. These are so fantastic!!! Thank you so much for sharing! Can you add one to your list that says ELD (English Language Development)? I am so in love with these! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

  44. I love your blog so much that I've nominated you for the "I Heart Your Blog" Award! Thank you so much for sharing your talents! Please visit my blog to accept your award. =)

  45. Thank you I love these. I have your original ones form last year. Here is my wish list
    ELD, Reading Buddies Free Choice

    Also do you have the clocks and times available for download.

  46. These are AMAZING! I was going to request reading buddies, but I see a lot of people have already beaten me to it :) only one other request: fun friday

    You ROCK

  47. Oops, thought of another idea... How about ones for the must do, may do, and catch up? Have you seen the idea to use mustard, mayonnaise and ketchup clip art? so cute.

  48. Love these. Any chance of you making ones that say: French, Fitness, Fieldtrip, Guest Speaker, Reading Buddies, and Computer Buddies???

  49. Thank you so much, Cara! These are wonderful and just what I needed. The pictures just add to the schedule. I hate to ask for more, but I'd be glad to try to make some myself. Could you tell me what font you used? I started making these today, so they'll be ready tomorrow.

    If you are able to make some more, could you consider these:

    *Morning Work
    * Read Aloud
    * Author's Study
    * G.L.A.D.
    * V. I. P.
    * Work Work

    ~Free Choice
    ~Clean Up
    ~Current Events
    ~Social Studies

    You can email me at stephanie.vanhorn@bvsd.org

    Thanks a million!

  57. Cara, is "scribd" the only way to download these?

  58. For some reason I cannot download these. Is there any way you could send them to me?

  59. Hey Miss Caroll,

    Are you able to do ones that are daily routine ones? Like wake up, get dressed, brush teeth, park, etc....

    If there is a program you used, can you tell me what it is so I can look into purchasing it?

    Thanks so much!!

  60. Cara,

    Thanks so much for these schedule cards. I wrote earlier asking for some extras. Well, I did some playing with my computer since I learned a few things from my Apple One on One workshops and figured out how to make some that are almost the same. Only the border is not quite as wide on the corners. Thanks for the inspiration. I use yours and mine go right along with them.

    You are awesome!


  61. I could print the first batch, but scribd isn't working for me. It's not letting me download or print and this new batch of schedule cards and there are some I really want. Can you upload it a different way?? Thanks so much! LOVE your stuff.

  62. These are so great! I can not wait to use them! I was wondering if you could make ones that have days of the week on them, so I can make an individualized schedule for one of my students. My obsession with consistency screams, "I need the same font and images," haha! Thanks!

  63. I came across these on Pinterest -- absolutely LOVE them for my Kindergarten room. I am having the same trouble as another commenter, though, and am not able to print them from scribd. Is there something about scribd that I don't know? It tells me that I have to upload my own document in order to print yours. Not sure how to do that! :) Thanks for your help!

  64. Hello,
    I was wondering if you could make a schedule card for Spanish, word study, story, and morning meeting? Also when I downloaded your fantastic cards I wasn't able to get the reading workshop, phonics,etc. There were only five pages to download.

  65. I am so LOVING these schedule cards! I would love to use them in my classroom next year but for some reason I am having trouble getting the PDF file to open so I can print them. I can't get them to open in Scribd either. can you tell me what I need to do to get them to open? Thank you so much for sharing thhese. I am excited to use them next year!

  66. BTW....My email is Amber.Steele789@gmail.com if you want to email me there. Thanks, again!

  67. Hi Cara! I am a first year teacher and am so excited to come across these! They are fabulous! Do you have one that just says "Social Studies"? I would love it, if you do!

    Thank you so much for sharing. I really do appreciate it.

  68. Hi Cara! I love your cards. I am a K/1 teacher in Louisville, KY. This year I will have a child with Autism in my classroom. It was suggested that I use a friendly schedule for him. I love your schedule cards and I think that they are easy to understand. I need a few different cards for my room Poetry, Outdoor Classroom (we go outside and explore with a local Naturalist), Media (combination of library and computer), Less than 100 Jar (weekly estimation activity), Theme Study (exploration of our social studies or science theme), Literature Groups. Thanks so much for your help. Heather hmisham921@aol.com

  69. Hi! I love these cards. I will be teaching Grade 1 in September and am excited to use these in my classroom. I could use the following cards to add:
    Reading Buddies
    Read Aloud
    Thank you!

  70. These are amazing!! I see I am a little late to the party, but I am so glad I found them. Is there any way to download them besides going through "scibd" & paying? I apologize for the repeated question, I'm sure.

  71. These are wonderful! I would love to have them, but can't download them through scribd....are they on teachers pay teachers or can you email them to me at alecia-and-ryan@hotmail.com. Thanks!

  72. I love these, but can't get seem to get Scribd to download them for me! Is there a way you could email them to me??? PLEASE? :)
    Thanks so much!

  74. Oh my goodness! I am in love with your blog and schedule cards! I just found you tonight! I, too, am having trouble with Scribd. I would be happy to pay you if you posted them on TpT....or perhaps you'd consider taking the time to email them to me? I feel so guilty asking you because after reading your latest posts, I can tell that your life is super busy right now......I won't be offended if you ignore me. :) ----- Taryn


  75. Hello! Your cards are great. I am having trouble getting them downloaded off of the Scribd. Would you mind sending them to me? Jamay.patten@carlisle.k12.ia.us Thanks so much!

Additional 30minutes of reading separated in the day where the kids switch classes and are grouped by reading level..

  90. I used your schedule cards last year and received many compliments from teachers and even parents! Would you be able to make cards for the following:
    Power Up (our RTI time)
    SEARCH (our gifted program)
    Mystery Reader
    Fun Friday (earned extra recess on Fridays)
    Independent Reading
    Language Arts
