Link up with a quick tip that makes life in your classroom easier. There are no weekly themes or topics. The only real "rule" is that you may not link up with a paid product or unit. Our goal is to share the small nuggets of greatness that are happening every day in our classrooms! If you missed the backstory about how this party got started, click here! Jean and I would also appreciate it if you linked back to our blogs and included our button in your post :)

I actually stole this idea from my teammie, but I am SO doing this next year!

She put two long velcro strips (the fuzzy side) on on her whiteboard where she hangs her schedule.

Then she put the stiff, prickly velcro on the back of each of her schedule cards. 

Then she hangs up her schedule!

This is why I L.O.V.E. this idea:
  • The cards are strongly secured to the board
  • You don't have to be replacing the magnets that are always falling off (you know what I'm talking about!)
  • You can overlap them without having to worry about them falling off the board! I can't tell you how many times I'm picking schedule cards up off the floor.
Don't you love these schedule cards?!?! All three second grade classes at my school snagged the amazing Cara Carroll's FREE schedule cards HERE!

  1. Love this idea! I taped mine up but then when we have changes I never move them because I don't want to have to re-tape it! I have a student next year who will rely heavily on the schedule so I need to be able to move things around easily. :)
    Thanks for the tip!

  2. Two comments:
    I use similar cards but I laminated with the heavy stuff and I used strong magnet tape. These go up on the side of my white board. Kids love it when I remove them as we complete throughout the day. I can easily move them around.
    I use the velcro trick for words on my tall cabinet doors. Since nothing sticks in my room, I ran top to bottom strips of colored duct tape down the center of each door. I put the velcro fuzzy side dots on the tape; and the hook side dots to the back of the laminated vocabulary, genre type, etc. Easy to change out; high enough for all to see. I made my vocabulary cards from sentence strip paper and laminated them.
    Those are my two tricks that worked!

  3. I'm going to be using a similar method to change out my Common Core goals each day.

    Thanks for sharing!
