Do you have a calendar set up that you love and that is functional for your students? Do your students have a hard time understanding concepts such as weekends vs. school days, yesterday/today/tomorrow or struggle with changes in their schedule? Enter: Color coded calendar visuals!! This calendar color code system helps students -understand what to expect for the month -reduce anxiety about upcoming and new events -learn time skills This was a total game changer for my students. It helped reduce anxiety about upcoming events, weekends, and special days. And it started with four simple colors.
I keep the calendar color code simple for a reason. Even without visuals, students are able to quickly pick up the colors and their meanings. Yellow means it's a regular school day. Green - a special school day, such as an assembly, field trip, half day, etc. Red means it's a day when you should have school, but you don't. And then blue is for weekends, weekends are special because we never have school on weekends.
Here is a video I made describing the calendar, temperature chart, season visuals, and what to wear. https://youtu.be/DXI7HgUUNPI
