Visual Planning Charts for Unorganized Kids
Oftentimes children who struggle with organization need to break down simple tasks through visualization. When creating visual planning charts, kids may find tasks to be less daunting and manageable as they get ready for school, complete chores, do their homework and find activities to keep them active after school.
Preparing charts with pictures helps a child remember the tasks they are assigned and makes it much easier for your child to follow. These exercises allow your child to not only visualize what they need to do in their head, but also improves their ability to follow directions and lowers the chance of them skipping steps. Children can use these planning charts to establish healthy routines and better management skills as way of preparing the brain for higher learning in the classroom.
The visual planning charts below can help your child set a schedule for different tasks and gives you some ideas of how you can create your own charts for other chores and after school activities. Print the images below to hang around your house to help your child see what they need to complete each day.
